Mind the Minder: A Review of the Swiss Pay Landscape

Swiss issuers and investors are still navigating “VegüV” –the landmark 2013 legislation that put all executive pay to a binding shareholder vote. This report examines how companies are choosing to structure their pay proposals, reviews vote results to see how investors are exercising their enhanced franchise, and takes a deeper dive into several notable examples of investor opposition. In addition, we look at how the new regime is impacting the quantum and structure of executive pay, and check in on how non-executive director compensation has been affected.

Our conversations during the 2017 engagement season focused on factors companies consider when setting performance targets for their short- and long-term incentive programs.
