KPMG's Guide to Directors' Remuneration 2017

KPMG's Guide to Directors' Remuneration 2017

Our guide offers a broad overview of executive directors’ remuneration in FTSE 350 companies, including salary, pension, bonus and long-term incentives; as well as non-executive directors’ fees. It also provides insights into diversity across the executive population, alongside other current issues affecting remuneration.

Despite the continued restraint of companies in 2017, annual bonus and long term incentive payments remain at high levels.

While there have been no regulatory changes in 2017, a third of companies introduced or increased a post-vesting long term incentive holding period across the FTSE 350. And a quarter of the FTSE 350 companies increased shareholding requirements for their executive directors.

Any pay approaches considered within remuneration committees should be based on full information and evidence, explained in a transparent way that clearly demonstrates the business rationale. It is unlikely the media interest will die down, but both companies and their shareholders agree that no further regulatory intervention is required.
