KPMG’s Guide to Directors’ Remuneration 2015

It explores factors including salary, pension, bonus and long-term incentives for executive directors and non-executive directors’ fees.

It also discusses current issues affecting the remuneration landscape. 

Key findings:

  • Almost a third of FTSE 350 Chief Executive Officers received no salary increase this year
  • The highest median annual bonus for Finance Directors was in Financial Services and was 124% of annual salary
  • Almost a quarter of the fixed remuneration in the FTSE 350 Other Executive Directors, equals the value of pension
  • Less than a fifth of FTSE 350 companies increased fee levels for Non-Executive Directors. 

Despite 2015 witnessing the highest levels of salary freezes for executive directors in the last four years, annual bonus payments remain at similarly high levels. Regulatory reforms in executive remuneration also appear to be promoting a change in the approach to pay amongst companies. The key question is are companies focusing merely on complying with these reforms or are they embedding them as part of their pay philosophy?
