The pay ratio, proxy disclosure and say on pay are all intended to empower shareholders and give them the resources to ensure that the level and structure of executive pay are aligned with shareholder interests. Our panel of key thought leaders and practitioners will address several key questions about these “shareholder control” devices: Are they needed? Do they work as Congress intended? How can they be improved?

Discussion topics will include:

- How should shareholders use the pay ratio data?
- Does the CD&A need a required graphic disclosure of pay vs performance?
- What pay factors affect Say on Pay approval levels?
- Are asset managers reluctant to vote “no” for fear of losing corporate business?
