6th Annual Executive Compensation Summit

Thursday November 19, 2015 | 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM | Pacific Club, Newport Beach

2015: A Landmark Year for Executive Compensation
5 Years of Say-on-Pay Votes, Growing Investor Activity
and More SEC Rules

2015 marks the fifth anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Act and the culmination of five years of required say-on-pay votes.   During this period, executive compensation and governance practices have changed substantially.  In addition, in 2015 the SEC issued four sets of compensation rules in proposed or final form.  When these become effective they will further shape executive compensation, governance and disclosure practices in 2016 and beyond. 

Our panel, from director, institutional investor and legal perspectives, will provide a practical assessment of where we are today on public company compensation and where we may be headed, in order to enable directors and companies to be prepared to deal with the ever changing landscape.
