Abstract

Directors pay and corporate governance continue to generate public outrage and calls for reform. Our meta-regression analysis of all comparable UK pay-for-performance estimates finds little, if any, meaningful association between directors pay and corporate performance. However, there is evidence of the effectiveness of past comply-or-explain rules, especially the Cadbury Report. Unfortunately, the effects of past reform efforts tend to erode over time. This study also explores differences between pay-performance estimates, finding that these are largely explained by how pay and performance are measured by a given study.
