11 February 2022 Articles

The AGM season is set to be intense in 2022. The board remuneration of listed companies, especially those affected by COVID, is back on the agenda.

This article by the Spanish economic media, Cinco Días, explains that the main discontent observed in the 2021 AGM season was in regard to remuneration practices. According to Morrow Sodali, board diversity and remuneration will be key this season in 2022.

The Commission, which reformed the Code of Good Governance for Listed Companies in 2020, urges boards to achieve a gender diversity of at least 40% by the end of 2022. "We predict that those who do not present a minimum gender balance of 70%-30% will face significant levels of opposition during the AGMs," warns Morrow Sodali.
