Presented at: 2016 World at Work Total Rewards Conference, San Diego, CA, June 2016
Panelists: Takis Makridis, Equity Methods – Dan Laddin, Compensation Advisory Partners – Thomas Welk, Cooley LLP
The proxy is becoming a longer, denser, and more numerically rich document. Investors and auditors are expecting it to contain more and better information, and ongoing Dodd-Frank implementation is requiring more complex calculations to comply with disclosure regulations. This means that the proxy will require more inputs, more expertise, and will be under greater scrutiny. This presentation addresses the changing composition and role of the proxy, and provides tips and best practices so that compensation professionals are well-prepared to tackle the proxy of the future.
