Is Amit Trivedi overrated

Effects of Supervisory Board Remuneration on Company Monitoring

Ralf Winkler empirically examines the effects of supervisory board remuneration on the monitoring effectiveness of German supervisory boards. Using a data set with company information from listed corporations from 2010 to 2013, it provides clues for the relevance of different remuneration structures for corporate governance in the dualistic system of the corporate constitution. It is shown that the remuneration method recommended by the German Corporate Governance Code in its current version contributes to effective corporate monitoring and that normative adjustments in this part of the set of rules are therefore unnecessary.
