Abstract

(VF)Cette étude s’intéresse à l’incidence des mécanismes de gouvernance sur le niveau de rémunération des dirigeants. À partir d’un échantillon de 132 entreprises françaises cotées, nous examinons l’impact des caractéristiques du conseil d’administration, de l’existence d’un comité de rémunération, ainsi que de la structure de propriété sur la rémunération du dirigeant. Nos résultats mettent notamment en évidence que l’existence d’un comité de rémunération affecte la politique de rémunération, mais que son influence diffère selon le type de structure de propriété de l’entreprise. La proportion d’administrateurs indépendants au conseil n’affecte pas, quant à elle, la politique de rémunération des dirigeants.(VA)This study examines the influence of corporate governance mechanisms on CEO compensation. Using a sample of 132 French listed companies, we study whether ownership structure, the characteristics of board and compensation committee, affect the level of CEO compensation. Our results suggest that the presence of compensation committees affects top management pay, which also varies according to the ownership structure. The proportion of independent directors on the board has no impact on CEO compensation.
