Shifting sands for British CEOs

As we deal with executive pay changes locally, the UK is preparing for its own clamp down aimed at empowering shareholders – but there have been significant changes in the structure of who owns shares.

Executive remuneration is out of control in the United Kingdom. The final report by the High Pay Commission concluded that "there is rarely a link between directors’ incentives and the way a company performs. In the past 10 years, the average annual bonus for FTSE 350 directors went up by 187 per cent and the average year-end share price declined by 71 per cent”. The average pay levels of workers rose only by 10 per cent during the same period.
