FTSE 100 Trends Update

May 29, 2018
| United Kingdom

This update is based on around two-thirds of FTSE 100 companies that have published their Annual Report & Accounts to date (from September 2017 year-ends onwards).

With nearly 60% of FTSE 100 AGMs having now taken place, this is the second in our series of FTSE 100 updates on remuneration trends, proxy agency recommendations and AGM voting out-turns. While there have been examples of companies implementing more tailored arrangements, for the majority, the theme of conservatism continues. The most common changes relate to re-thinking how performance is assessed for the purpose of incentive plans and the introduction of shareholder friendly features. As you will have seen in the press, it is proving to be a lively AGM season and we are seeing a number of companies receive less than 80% votes in favour of remuneration related resolutions.
