A survey of members of the Irish Institute of Pensions Management found that 42 per cent of those employed in the sector make more than €85,000.
Just over two-thirds have earned a bonus in the past year, and only a small minority have not received a raise since 2017.
The IIPM is the professional, educational and training organization for pension professionals. It was founded in 1990.
Survey results confirm strong levels of compensation among members with high levels of job security and significant scope for career advancement.
Conducted between April and June, the survey found that 80 percent of IIPM members earn over €55,000 and 14 percent earn over €125,000 per year.
Institute President Ian Slattery said qualified members of the Dublin-based organization were in high demand among employers at all levels, and said the survey had revealed higher salaries and bonuses among Institute members than peers in the same sector .
Bonuses are common, as 70 percent of IIPM members report receiving performance-related pay in the last 12 months, with a bonus accounting for more than 31 percent of nearly one in five salaries.
