Revealed: The industries with the richest top earners

How much do the top earners in your industry earn? A new analysis has looked at 52,000 salaries in the capital and found that, surprise, surprise, those in the finance industry stand to make the highest salaries.

The analysis, by salary benchmarking site Emolument, found the top 10 per cent of earners in the capital's financial services sector make an average 290,000 a year, when gross salary and annual bonus are taken into account.

That was followed by the insurance sector, where the top 10 per cent of earners make as much as 153,000, and the energy, mining, chemicals and environmental sector, where the average top salary is 143,000.

At the bottom end of the scale was charity and not for profit, where the top average salary is a rather humbler 61,000. In the public and education sectors, it's a slightly higher 67,000, while top earners in sports, culture and recreation make 72,000.
