The regulation of executive remuneration has tightened over the last few years. The reporting of companies listed at Helsinki Stock Exchange is primarily guided by the listed companies’ corporate governance code. Finnish companies draft their annual Remuneration reports regarding executive remuneration.
In the spring of 2015 we analysed the published Finnish companies’ remuneration reports. The research data consists of around 120 listed companies and the results are interesting. The quality of reporting of remuneration has improved over the last years and there are increasingly more excellent, clear and understandable remuneration reports. There is still high variation between companies however. Most of the companies report moderately well and ten listed companies’ report is considered excellent.
The research report, published at the end of May 2015 is based on public Remuneration reports, and it contains fresh and extensive data from CEO, management team and board remuneration and their structures and developments in Finland. The contents of the report are as follows:
- Current issues from executive remuneration regulation and reporting
- The survey implementation and listed companies’ governance code
- CEO remuneration, notice period and severance pay

- Pension arrangements
- Board fees
The research report is a 19-page high quality unique package to guide decision making. The research report will be delivered for client through the publication system.
