Why Are Investors So Focused on Compensation?
With Katherine Rabin, CEO, Glass, Lewis & Company

Executive compensation – in particular, pay for performance -- continues to top the list of governance concerns among institutional investors. Companies in more than a dozen countries globally now offer shareholders a "say on pay," which is having a dramatic effect on the design and disclosure of compensation plans. Katherine ("KT") Rabin, CEO of Glass, Lewis & Co., one of the world's leading providers of governance and proxy voting services to the world's largest investors, will provide an insider's view on how investors evaluate compensation issues, including examples of best and bad practices, lessons learned from the 2013 proxy season and what to expect next year.

Today's complex and innovative executive compensation plans come with a cost; hard to understand incentive properties and confusing value of the total pay package. In this keynote presentation, Carr will illustrate how science can be used to quantify incentive alignment and determine the real value of plans with multiple performance targets in short-term and long-term pay.
