This paper investigates the relationship between executives' ability and executives' compensation based on data concerning Chinese listed companies. We found that executives with higher ability can obtain a higher salary, which partly validates the manager market in China. Further analysis suggests that this correlation exists only in competitive industries and that there is a significant difference in executive pay decision mechanisms between monopoly and competitive industries. This paper enriches studies on determinants of executive pay, and the findings have policy implications for relevant regulators.
