Investors flag concerns over weakening pay rules for non-execs

Quick Summary

Under current rules, non-executive directors are able to buy and hold shares in the companies on whose boards they sit.

The government is pushing to change the rules to allow non-executives to take a bigger proportion of their income in shares as a way to link their financial rewards with the success of the company.

The code says that “circumstances which are likely to impair a non-executive director’s independence include whether a director participates in the company’s share option or a performance-related pay scheme”.
