The regulatory oversight of executive pay - proxy advisory firm policies, rules issued from the SEC, additional disclosure requirements - along with pressures to establish more rigorous executive pay for performance continues unabated. At the same time, we have more executives across Corporate America participating in compensation plans formed by private equity (PE) firm philosophies and practices. And activist investors are asserting their pay philosophies in public company Boardrooms. 

The presentation will cover how PE and public company executive stock incentive plan practices differ - ownership requirements, granting practices, the portfolio of awards and the performance metrics used to vest awards – and offer suggestions as to how PE company practices might help strengthen public company executive pay programs and address the many external pressures.
