Jay S. Fishman, chairman and CEO of The Travelers Cos., received a $40.66 million pay package last year, up 36 percent from his $29.87 million compensation in 2012, according to documents filed Friday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Fishman was paid a $1 million salary, $7.5 million in non-equity incentive pay, $106,007 in “other compensation,” $21.8 million from exercising options and $10.24 million from stock vested.
