The committee, which issues non-binding recommendations for Deutsche Bank's board of directors about how to reform pay, said it needed to react to efforts by E.U. regulators to introduce a maximum ratio of variable to fixed pay.
Juergen Hambrecht, a former BASF chief executive, who heads the panel said: 'European rules are more stringent than in the U.S. and Asia. This has consequences. A raising of fixed salaries is one of them'.
In the meantime, the news agency reports that Deutsche Bank's supervisory board chairman said co-Chief Executives Anshu Jain and Juergen Fitschen will each receive $6.2m in total remuneration for 2012.
