With a special focus on the UK, France, Italy, and Spain, and comparison with other Northern-European countries, we’ll discuss:
- Trends related to executive officers’ salary regulations.
- The rights of the general shareholders’ meeting to obtain information on executives’ remunerations and to approve such remunerations.
- Regulations on various types of companies including SMEs, listed companies, etc.
- The UK has had an advisory vote on executive annual remuneration for nearly fifteen years and a binding vote on policy since 2013. We will discuss the impact so far and what other European countries may want to consider ahead of the implementation of the European Shareholders Rights directive which will give shareholders a say on pay in a way similar to the UK’s.
