On 3 March 2013, Swiss voters approved the Minder Initiative, a referendum against excessive corporate executive remuneration. Similar discussions are taking place in Germany and France. What do these trends signify for European companies and their executives? We'll discuss:
Executive remuneration discussions across Europe, including newly enacted or proposed rules and how they are targeting both public and private companies.
Rules for determining the amount of executive remuneration, publicity given to it, and procedures for reviewing or approving remuneration by corporate boards or shareholders.
Suggestions from professional and government bodies for non-binding guidance on executive remuneration limits.
Learn about currently proposed and draft rules in the overall European context to identify likely trends for statutory and regulatory limitation of executive remuneration.
