Norway's sovereign fund backs Credit Suisse executive pay

OSLO (Reuters) - Norway’s $915 billion (732.43 billion pounds) sovereign wealth fund, the world’s largest, will vote in favour of Credit Suisse’s (CSGN.S) planned payouts to senior managers following a recent bonus cut, the fund said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The board has listened to shareholder concerns related to remuneration resolutions ... Norges Bank Investment Management welcomes the announcement made by the board on 13 April regarding a revision of executive remuneration,” the fund added.

Shareholder advisory service Glass Lewis separately said on Tuesday the concessions offered by Credit Suisse were “too little too late”.
