Vlerick Business School has a tradition in research on executive remuneration. An impressive database, including about 600 listed firms throughout Europe, has been developed since 2007 and is enriched every year with new data.
In its first part, this year’s conference will not only provide the most recent data on executive remuneration, but it will also pay specific attention to the evolutions. Over the past years, executive remuneration has been the subject of a lot of both hard and soft regulation and we will try to find out what has been the impact of these regulations. Also, attention will be paid to the extent to which executive remuneration and firm performance are linked.
The second part of the conference will focus on board remuneration. Firstly, it will be explained how board remuneration is structured and what board members are/should be paid for. Secondly, the results of an in-depth study by GUBERNA on board remuneration in listed firms in Belgium, will be presented.
On the occasion of two panel discussions, remuneration committee members, experts, academics and investor representatives will share their experiences and opinions.
