Executive remuneration & private clients

Be prepared for the long run – find the sweet spot within a competitive package, compliance and stakeholder expectations

Creating the perfect executive pay package

To attract and retain the best, your package needs to be competitive. At the same time, it has to be compliant and transparent. Finding this balance takes skill and experience.

Governance of pay, peer benchmarking, market trends, performance-based incentive plans, retrocession of directors’ fees and international tax treatment are just some of the common issues arising when deciding on an executive’s remuneration.

Strategic review to kickstart the process

We approach this process with a review of your current reward practices to identify potential gaps in terms of legal requirements, market practices and outside view. In this stage, we support you with comprehensive benchmarking and our deep expertise on executive pay practices.

Design and implementation

At the design phase, we assist you in selecting the right collaboration setup and provide clarity on the relevant tax rules associated with various elements that constitute the executive pay package. We guide you through the design process with the ultimate goal of creating a revitalised executive compensation package that boasts incentive schemes best suited to you. In addition, we can help you link executive pay with sustainability (ESG) goals and other metrics in terms of pay for performance.

We help you formalise the new design together with the necessary communication documentation for different stakeholders.

In a business-as-usual setup, we support your executives with their recurring tax compliance formalities and provide tailored tax advice both locally and across international borders. In terms of pay transparency requirements, we’re here to advise your organisation on existing withholding and reporting requirements. We’ve the experience and solutions that maximise talent satisfaction and success to elevate your leadership impact.
