Remuneration Committee

We support on all aspects of senior executive remuneration and can assist remuneration committees and management throughout the annual calendar.

How we can help

Remuneration Committee support

We provide support on all aspects of the remuneration committee agenda.

Annual report disclosures

We can help with drafting of the remuneration report alongside technical reviews to ensure compliance with the latest reporting regulations and governance expectations.

Target setting

We provide advice to management teams and remuneration committees on how to set stretching and effective performance ranges for annual bonus and long-term incentive schemes.

Incentive design and policy reviews

We support clients with developing and refining their remuneration philosophy to ensure that it supports business strategy and culture, including with the design of incentive structures and reward frameworks.

AGM support

We support our clients on all remuneration aspects of AGM planning.  This includes evaluating voting risk associated with proposals using published guidelines and our in-depth knowledge of shareholder perspectives on pay.  We also support the drafting of Q&A materials and responses to investor queries.  Our post‑meeting support includes analysing shareholder voting and supporting any additional engagement that may be required.

Shareholder management

Our service offering spans the entire shareholder consultation process. We often support the drafting of clear and compelling consultation materials to draw out the commercial rationale for proposals.  Ellason also provides ‘behind the scenes’ support throughout the engagement phase, including around reviewing and responding to proxy advisor reports and recommendations.

Remuneration governance

We provide advice on the remuneration committee’s remit, terms of reference and governance processes.
