High-profile events have initiated significant global changes in regulations and the connection between shareholders and executive compensation. Shareholders and regulators alike are now demanding more information and say on how executive compensation is governed and disclosed, as well as how it's measured. Yet despite these changes, the basic structure of executive pay has not changed much. However, some organizations are making waves by introducing new ways of compensating leadership teams. Hear about novel approaches on delivering pay to executives, what's different and how these practices individually, or in conjunction, are, and maybe setting, the future of executive compensation.

Canadian financial institutions with international operations face a number of potentially conflicting incentive compensation rules and related regulatory body supervision. The rules are intended by the regulators to discourage inappropriate risk-taking on the part of both senior management and other individuals whose decisions may have material consequences for the institutions they serve. The purpose of this Gallagher McDowall bulletin is to provide a high level overview of the various rules, their common features, and to note important differences.

What impact does the US market have on Canadian executive compensation? A lot, according to our Gallagher McDowall research team. We examine this question from the following perspectives: 1. The impact of the recent rise in the value of the US dollar on the average compensation of the CEOs of the publicly traded companies in the S&P/TSX 60 Index. 2. What we have learned from the past in dealing with exchange rate fluctuations. 3. The potential cost of hiring US CEOs to run Canadian companies.

The past year was unique in Canada’s ?nancial sector because four out of ?ve major banks  appointed new CEOs in their 2013-2014 ?scal years. These appointments give us a unique opportunity to assess whether the banks are changing the  compensation of their new CEOs. In addition, we can see how the banks have responded to the  Canadian Coalion for Good Governance’s emphasis on lower weighng of stock opons, capping of  pension bene?ts, no special perquisites, and no generous severance or change of control provisions.    Our analysis is based on the executive compensation disclosures provided by the banks in their  management proxy circulars.

Much has been written in legal circles on the significant fiduciary and corporate governance implications of the Ontario Court of Appeal’s July 10, 2014 decision in the case of Unique Broadband Systems (UBS) vs. Mr. Gerald McGoey.1 One of the factors the appeal court took into account in deciding that $5.7 million of special compensation payments could not be supported was the fact that UBS board did not obtain independent compensation advice.2 This article considers the approaches that an independent compensation consulting firm, such as McDowall Associates, might take in helping boards of directors use their business judgment when special compensation is warranted for selling a significant portion or all of a company’s assets.

LEVERAGING TOTAL REWARDS FOR THE FUTURE NEW TOTAL REWARD TRENDS 2011 AND BEYOND After a period of uncertainty, the Canadian marketplace is seeing the “light at the end of the tunnel” and is developing its go forward plans. Now more than ever, the importance of Total Rewards within the business environment has become a priority for employers worldwide. Employers must understand the conditions under which businesses operate and how Total Rewards can leverage the sustainability of an organization going forward. It is with this in mind that McDowall Associates initiated original research by ap-proaching both public and private sector organizations in spring 2011. Taking the business climate in context, we were able to analyze the current and expected growth in revenues, what the organizational expectations are towards achieving this growth, as well as business priorities and how this may impact operational budgets.
