Compensation arrangements for executives of financial institutions are best designed to align with a company’s culture and values, business strategy, trends in the industry and comparable to that of peers in the industry, while properly incorporating a performance factor directly tied to the performance of the company.  Meyer-Chatfield Compensation Advisors is dedicated to servicing its clients in compensation program designs that are focused on the specific needs of each client.

Ensure the Compensation Peer Group Is Appropriate for the Company.
The compensation peer group typically includes similarly situated companies in terms of industry, size, location(s) and performance and should correlate closely with the performance peer group.

Utilize Well-Defined, Relevant and Results-Based Metrics.
Incentive plans should be customized to the company to support the achievement of its business strategy while limiting overly aggressive or overly conservative decision-making.

Confirm Compensation Levels Are Relative to Competitors.
By comparing the company’s compensation program to that of peers, the compensation committee can determine the competitiveness of each element of executive compensation and how each compensation component fits within the total program.
