United Kingdom: FTSE 100 executive remuneration report

In brief

Our FTSE 100 executive remuneration report is now available here.

Compiling key information from our FTSE 100 remuneration review, the report highlights important trends in executive remuneration.


Compiling key information from our FTSE 100 remuneration review, the report highlights important trends in executive remuneration during the 2022 AGM seasons, including:

  • How executive remuneration is being structured
  • Prevalent performance conditions
  • ESG metrics in variable pay
  • Shareholding requirements
  • Pay ratios, increases, and changes
  • Gender and ethnic diversity on boards
  • Pension contribution equalisation

As executive pay has rebounded significantly in 2021 and 2022, these insights can assist with preparations for the 2023 AGM Season. However, as public perceptions on fairness have shifted acutely in the wake of the COVID- 19 crisis and the ongoing "cost of living" and energy crises, investors are becoming increasingly sensitive to executive pay packages and are urging RemCos to practice restraint in awarding and setting executive pay.

Arm yourself in advance of the 2023 AGM season with how FTSE 100 companies are responding to the challenges of providing a competitive remuneration package for their executives, while meeting the concerns of investors and the public.
