The Remuneration Structure of the Largest Dutch Listed Companies within the AEX-Index

This study about the structure of director‘s remuneration is a student research conducted at the request of Eumedion as part of the PREMIUM Programme at Maastricht University. The project was done by a team of four master‘s students under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Mieke Olaerts.

Executive compensation and its different components, including base salary, variable pay and share options, have been a highly controversial issue and have attracted the attention of academics, legislator and media.1 Executive remuneration practices of large financial institutions were considered to be a contributing factor to the global financial crisis.2 Hence, in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, there were many reform proposals concerning executive remuneration considered by regulators in jurisdictions around the world.3 One of the core themes that arose was the risk-based approach to executive remuneration.4 This approach proposed an enhanced regulation of pay in financial institutions because of moral hazard concerns.5 Further core themes concerned the necessity of a shift from short-termism towards a long-term focus and sustainability and a reconsideration of performance measures. 6

This research analyses the remuneration structure of the 17 non-financial institutions listed on the AEX-Index, which have their registered office in the Netherlands.
