Royal Bank of Scotland's head of investment banking, John Hourican, will receive almost 7.5 million pounds ($11.8 million) in pay, bonus and shares for last year.
The move is likely to fuel further fury about the size of payouts at the majority taxpayer-owned bank.
Hourican will next month receive 15.9 million shares, worth 4.2 million pounds, for a three-year award that ended last year.
The bank's annual report revealed the pay for its top executives, which showed the highest paid -- Ellen Alemany, head of its U.S. business Citizens -- could get 4.7 million pounds in pay, bonus and long-term award for 2011.
The second-highest paid, Hourican, got a 751,000-pound salary and a 2.5-million pound bonus for 2011, taking his pay for the year to 7.5 million pounds.
RBS did not name the executives, but they can be identified by their disclosed salaries.
