Afternoon session

“ERFA” (Erfahrungsaustausch) session for participants on compensation topics. All participants provide topics of interest to Agnès Blust Consulting. The topics will be shared amongst all participants one week ahead of the meeting so that participants can prepare accordingly. C&B experts can use the afternoon session to share information in a confidential set-up (closed roundtable)

The report is organized similarly to previous years, with an overview of compensation model of the Board of Directors and Executive Committees in the SMI Expanded. In addition, the company profiles will provide you with specific information on each of the organizations of the SMI Expanded on:

  • Structure of board compensation
  • Short-term incentive plan design including target level, maximum payout opportunity, key performance indicators
  • Deferral plans including vehicle (cash/equity), deferral period, vesting conditions, key performance indicators
  • Long-term incentive plan design including target level, maximum payout opportunity, key performance indicators, vehicle (cash/equity), vesting period, provisions in case of termination

In the appendices, which are also provided in an Excel file, the company-specific information is summarized in tables that make it easy for you to compare the various compensation systems.
