Executive Compensation: Focus on Performance and Communication

Since 2007, managers’ pay at SMIM constituent companies has been closing the gap with the remuneration earned by executives at SMI companies; and it is outpacing the rate of increase at small caps. Share-based compensation is becoming a more important factor at large- and mid-cap enterprises. Variable compensation goes up if the company has performed well – and it decreases when the results are poor. Communication with shareholders has gained in significance. These are the findings of the study entitled “Executive Compensation & Corporate Governance: Insights 2016” conducted by PwC Switzerland.
