Executive pay

Executive pay has been much in the news recently. For example, Robert Peston’s blog post – Is it curtains for big executive pay (8 May 2012).

Public companies provide details of their director’s pay in their annual reports, but this is not available in all databases providing company accounts data. Two of our specialist databases that do include information on executive pay are Thomson One Banker and Bloomberg.

Using the Thomson One Banker web interface, select the Thomson Overview report in the Company Analysis module.

Selecting the Key Executives link in the Thomson Overview Report will give a fuller list of executives with more detailed information.

Executives example (click to expand)

Select an individual to get more detail including compensation  (basic pay/salary, bonus, long-term incentives)

In Bloomberg the function MGMT will give you details of your selected companies management structure. Selecting one of the tabs (Executives, Board, Committees, Changes) and then selecting an individual will give their details including compensation (pay).

In Bloomberg you can also use the BIO function to search for an executive by name.

Overall Bloomberg has a better user interface for finding and browsing information about executives, but you do need to be at one of the Bloomberg PCs in the Eddie Davies Library or the Precinct Library.

    The High Pay Centre, an independent non-party think tank, has several reports on executive pay available from its website http://highpaycentre.org/
