The Investment Association (IA) has published the 2017 update of its ‘principles of remuneration’ document (remuneration principles) and, in advance of the 2018 AGM season, highlighted certain items of focus.
The remuneration principles set out IA members’ views on the role of shareholders and directors in relation to remuneration and the manner in which remuneration should be determined and structured. They aim to provide a guide to shareholder expectations and good practice for companies with a main market listing but are also relevant to companies on other public markets, such as AIM, and other entities.
The remuneration principles contains three principles (the principles), which concern remuneration policies, remuneration structures, and levels of remuneration. The principles are then supported by guidance to help remuneration committees apply the principles and ensure a proper level of shareholder protection. The guidance consists of sections which provide general guidance, guidance on fixed remuneration, and guidance on variable remuneration.
