The Top Executive Compensation Survey

The yearly published Top Executive Compensation Survey gives a comprehensive picture of the levels and trends of the overall top executive compensations in Finland. Title-based survey covers CEOs and the executives directly reporting to CEOs. The general report of the survey includes a summary of executives’ salary and compensation levels in fixed categories. In company-specific reports, the peer groups will be tailored according to the needs of the company. The survey covers annually approximately 150 companies. About 2/3 of the Large Cap and Mid Cap companies in Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd participate in the survey, which shows our survey´s excellent coverage.

The survey is based on the compensation information of April in the current year. In addition to the standard reports, we also create tailored total compensation reports for executives or for a specified group of personnel according to the needs of the company.


Key Personnel Compensation Reports

We produce companies’ Key Personnel Compensation Report, which analyses all the elements of compensation as a part of the key personnel’s total compensation. Key Employees are divided into peer groups by job levels and job functions.


Director Compensation Reports

The Director Compensation Report provides a comprehensive picture of the compensation of board members. The Director Compensation Report includes all the Finnish listed companies as well as Swedish, Danish and Norwegian Large Cap and Mid Cap companies.

We produce tailored Company-specific Director Compensation Analysis on request. In these Company-specific reports, the board member remuneration in a selected target group is analyzed in more detail, e.g. for discussions in the Nomination Committee or the Shareholders’ Meeting.

The Company-specific Report is compiled as a PowerPoint presentation, and in addition to the comprehensive company-specific remuneration information of the selected target group, the Report contains information e.g. on the evolution of Director Compensation as well as information about share-based
compensation. The Report uses remuneration as agreed in the Shareholders’ Meeting, so the comparison of yearly compensation and meeting based compensation is transparent. The Report acts as a useful base for preparing the Board Remuneration proposal and for validating it in the Shareholders’ Meeting. The Company-specific Compensation Report can be ordered either in Finnish or in English.

We are happy to tell more about the reports and how to take part in them.
