Event Details

Join Nathan O'Connor and Radostin Kanev from Equity Methods to discuss optimizing equity awards in a down market.

With a 10-year bull market behind us, equity awards face new challenges as the economy struggles and pouts through COVID-19 and the aftermath it leaves. In a down market, or even just a volatile and unpredictable one, different sorts of equity awards and granting practices will be ideal for most companies. Already, relative performance awards are emerging as potential winners—and not just the popularized relative total shareholder return (rTSR) metric, but also relative financial metrics. Join us for a discussion of relative performance metrics, their pros and cons, and emerging strategies to optimize your equity awards in 2020 and beyond.
