ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on the challenges associated with the directors' remuneration policies in Great Britain. She claims that the move by companies to set out all elements of executive pay under the Director Remuneration Report Regulations introduced in 2002 is problematical due to the following reasons: executive pay has evolved in recent years and no two remuneration reports are the same. She also cites the effects of the move on smaller shareholders who do not have the resources to understand remuneration reports.
