Mr Sherwood, who is also co-chief executive of Goldman Sachs International, and already thought to be Britain’s best-paid banker, saw his bonus double to 109,461 shares, worth $15.8m.

The award was even higher than that handed to Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein, whose share bonus climbed 90pc to $13.6m.

The investment bank paid more than $100m to its top 12 executives in bonuses.

The share awards were revealed in filings lodged with America’s Securities and Exchange Commission last night.

The full scale of the rewards that Goldman Sachs will hand to its top bankers will not be known until later in the year, when it publishes their base salaries and cash bonuses.
