Shareholder Opposition: Investment Association publishes Public Register

08 January 2018

Executive pay continues to attract attention and negative publicity. Typically, a high proportion of remuneration results from long term incentive plans (LTIPs) in the form of employee share schemes. A further development was the publication by the Investment Association of the Public Register of companies who have received significant shareholder opposition. This was presaged in the Government commentary on corporate governance reforms announced in August.

The existence of the Register demonstrates the importance for companies of considering the wider investor reaction to the design of LTIP awards and other forms of employee share schemes when the plans are being introduced rather than reacting to adverse comments after the event.
