The 100 Most Overpaid CEOs: Are Fund Managers Asleep at the Wheel?

Join us for the release and webinar for the 2018 edition of The 100 Most Overpaid CEOs: Are Fund Managers Asleep at the Wheel?, February 22, 2018 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST.

The fourth report in the series, The 100 Most Overpaid CEO: Are Fund Managers Asleep at the Wheel? highlights the fund managers who continue to approve these pay packages at staggering rates (many funds approve nearly 100% of the pay packages they vote on), and contrasts them with those who take a stance against excessive pay with their votes.

Joining us on the webinar will be Steven Clifford author of “The CEO Pay Machine: How it Trashes America & How to Stop It,” sharing how his experience as a board member led him to become a critic of excessive executive compensation. Paul Herman of HIP Investor will present analyses show that companies identified as paying excessive CEO salaries in initial years of our report have since greatly underperformed the S&P 500 index.
