Remuneration consultants are at the heart of the executive pay setting process. According to the Financial Times, “One of the root causes of the executive compensation madness is the cottage industry of ‘comp consultants’, also described by Warren Buffet as ‘Ratchet, Ratchet & Bingo’”.
Our new report examines their commercial relationships to the companies they advise and the potential for conflicts of interest in the pay setting process. It looks at the additional services provided by remuneration companies in this context.
Report author Paul Marsland will present on his findings and will be joined by additional panellists to answer questions and discuss the report.
Lunch will be served. This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are essential. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
