Executive Remuneration Conference 2018

Vlerick Business School’s Executive Remuneration Research Centre is internationally recognized for its yearly study on executive remuneration throughout Europe. In this year’s edition, the sample has been extended further by also including the 50 largest Swiss Firms.

As a yearly tradition, the results will be presented in a format providing the participants with information on executive remuneration levels and structure, international comparisons and with a specific focus on actual topics such as say on pay, pay ratios, benchmarking practices, and drivers of executive remuneration.

On top of this, Vlerick Business School, Guberna and Deloitte have the honour to host this year a very special key-note: Professor Dr. Alex Edmans. He will share his outspoken views on executive remuneration.

Alex Edmans is Professor of Finance at London Business School and Academic Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance. Alex holds a BA from Oxford University and a PhD from MIT. Previously, he has been an investment banker at Morgan Stanley, which also provides him with relevant practical experience. His research interests are in corporate governance, executive remuneration, growth, M&As, behavioural finance, corporate social responsibility, and even more. Dr. Edmans’ research has been published in the highest quality academic journals and he is an opinion leader with a high exposure in international media. Alex Edmans has also been named a Rising Star of Corporate Governance by Yale University and a Rising Star of Finance by NYU/Fordham/RPI.
