CITY VIEWS: SHOULD SHAREHOLDERS HAVE MORE SAY ON EXECUTIVE PAY?

NEIL NEWTON | BERRYMANS LACE MAWER LLP
“Yes, but to a point. Shareholders invest a large amount of money so they deserve power, but it would be hard to implement.”

ALI MALAIBARI | BLOOMBERG
“Yes, as the level of director pay affects dividends. If executives get paid a lot, it can decrease what the shareholder receives.”

ALEX WALSH | NILEX
“The shareholders already have some control over the executives’ pay, but they don't use it! If they did use it I think they have enough.”
