Investor Dissatisfaction on Executive Pay Continues to Rise This Proxy Season

With more investors voting “no” on Say on Pay (SOP) than ever before, the number of large-cap companies that have received votes of 70 percent or below is on track to be the largest since SOP was implemented in 2011. In this Farient Brief, Eric Hoffmann analyzes the state of SOP this proxy season. Hoffmann, who leads Farient Information Services and the Data Analytics Team (DAT), has more than 25 years of technology and data analytics experience in executive compensation. Hoffmann dives into the data to tell a story of increased investor revolt over pay – and provides key action steps for boards to address investor concerns to avoid a high-profile SOP failure in the future.
