According to a new ranking from Forbes magazine , Elon Musk was the CEO with the highest gross remuneration in the world among the Fortune 500 last year. He would have received no less than 23.5 billion dollars between January and December. 2021, ranking far ahead of Tim Cook and his $770.5 million or Nvidia’s Jensen Huang ($561 million)

Today, the Apple is thus valued at more than two trillion dollars, which makes it the most highly rated of the planet ahead of Saudi Aramdo (Amin Hassan Nasser), Microsoft (Satya Nadella) and Alphabet (Sundar Pichai).
Relatively diluted figures
As often, these numbers should be considered through the prism of several income categories. The first being the release of stock options , which thus represent the majority of the result obtained by Elon Musk. With this also comes the salary, sometimes symbolically reduced to one euro as its share is negligible.
Tim Cook, for his part, also benefits from many advantages in kind with a private plane at his disposal for travel abroad as well as reinforced security . But it happens that some abuse these privileges, like Adam Neumann during his time at the head of WeWork. An adventure also brought to the screen by Apple on TV+ with WeCrashed.
Which jobs pay the best?
The big bosses who are the best paid are also found on the side of hedge fund type investment funds , strategic investments can be particularly profitable with a large portfolio. We can notably mention Kenneth Griffin, CEO of Citadel LLC with 1.7 billion dollars according to 2015 figures signed Institutional Investor .
