Investors in U.K.-based, Asia-focused bank Standard Chartered PLC (>> Standard Chartered PLC) are being urged by a major investment body to vote down a pay package for senior bankers collectively worth GBP56 million, amid concern that the bank hasn't been transparent enough with its shareholders about long-term bonus targets, the Sunday Telegraph reports.

Pensions Investment Research Consultants, or PIRC, has told investors to vote against the remuneration report for the bank at its forthcoming annual general meeting on May 9, the newspaper says, citing PIRC guidance.

The head of Standard Chartered's investment banking arm, Mike Rees, has received a package worth GBP8.2 million, the newspaper claims, comprised of a cash and shares bonus, performance awards and a salary. Rees's bonus -- which is nearly nine times his annual salary -- is highlighted in the PIRC report, the newspaper claims.

Neither PIRC nor Standard Chartered could immediately be reached for comment Sunday.

Reports of a potential revolt over pay at another bank come shortly after Barclays PLC (>> Barclays PLC) executives were reprimanded by investors at an annual meeting for spending too much money on pay and not enough on dividends. Over a quarter of investors in Barclays refused to back the bank's pay report.
