The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) announced today (Thursday) the results of the 2021 annual pay review. The review was undertaken by the Governance Sub-Committee (GSC) of the Exchange Fund Advisory Committee (EFAC). The GSC’s recommendations have been approved by the Financial Secretary through EFAC.
The Fixed Pay of the HKMA staff will be frozen for the coming year from April 2021. Variable Pay equivalent to 20.08% of Total Pay will be paid to staff on the basis of their performance in 2020. Variable Pay is a one-off payment to staff who have attained or exceeded the required level of performance.
The Financial Secretary determines the pay adjustment of HKMA staff each year having regard to the recommendations made to him by the GSC through EFAC, GSC’s assessment of the performance of the HKMA in the preceding year, the pay-survey findings of the financial sector conducted by independent human resources consultants and any other relevant factors.
