Member Query – Shareholding Requirements

In this member request, a query is raised regarding Shareholding Requirements applicable to senior executives. The member would like to know the following:

1. What levels of shareholding do you require CEOs and non executive directors to hold?
2. Over what period do you require the shareholding to be built up?
3. Do you require individuals to buy shares to meet the requirement if they have not achieved the shareholding requirement in the set time frame?
4. Do any shares count towards the shareholding requirement, which are not actually vested and owned by the individual?
5. Do you require any level of shareholding to continue after an individual has left the organisation?

The results from the survey are summarised at the end of the document.
