An Analysis of the Adequacy and Efficacy of Executive Compensation


Giovanni Gradellini
Prof. Charles Boughton, Faculty Mentor

The purpose of this study is to consider the impact of executive compensation in publicly traded companies. The investigation focuses on the size and methods by which they are rewarded.
Companies’ top executives' compensation should be aligned with the goal of maximizing the shareholder value. Their retributions keep climbing at exponentially high rates, doubting the methodology by which they are rewarded. In particular through stock options, which have become the most common method since the early nineties. The analysis also focuses on EVA, a common metric to evaluate management’s incentives plans that should be used with more frequence by compensation committees.
