Johnson's total pay was reported at between R33.4 and R35.6 million, with no mention of whether this did or did not include bonuses.

Bernard Fornas, Co-CEO of Richemont, topped the list of best paid execs, with total earnings for 2014 of close on R88 million. Topping the list of top earning bankers was Investec executive director Hendrik du Toit, with a reported total pay of R86 million.
