As part of the general assembly analyses for Swiss companies, Ethos analyses in detail the different board propositions and establishes voting recommendations. In particular since the introduction of the Minder initiative, shareholders of Swiss companies are required to approve remunerations for board members and executive management. Ethos publishes below the latest remunerations of chairmen and CEO of the SMI listed companies. This information will be constantly updated throughout the year as companies communicate their remuneration.
