Executive Remuneration

Remuneration is fundamental to the success and strategy of any business. Attractive and sustainable compensation structures can increase productivity and profitability, whilst also helping to attract and retain key talent. Investors and other stakeholders are increasingly focusing on all aspects of remuneration. 

Businesses need to ensure that their remuneration policy is aligned to their purpose and values as well as market norms and, for certain businesses, fine-tuning their compensation structure is made even more complicated by the need to comply with many levels of regulation and legislation. What ‘good looks like’ in terms of a commercially effective, ethical and legally compliant remuneration structure will differ from sector to sector and business to business, but for all businesses success requires a multi-faceted approach that navigates the various legal, regulatory, corporate governance and commercial requirements.

We understand that getting things wrong can have a detrimental effect on employee engagement and shareholder confidence and can, in certain sectors and situations, give rise to regulatory risk and adverse publicity. With this in mind, we have produced a series of Law-Now articles to provide guidance on the key remuneration issues that need to be considered.

  2. Executive Remuneration: Board and Senior Appointments for Listed or Regulated Organisations
  3. Board and Senior Exits for Listed or Regulated Companies
