Bosses pay smackdown: A fifth of FTSE companies named and shamed but where is Persimmon? | The Independent

It’s billed as a world first: Today the Investment Association has named and shamed 143 UK listed companies that endured shareholder rebellions of at least 20 per cent in the last year. That amounts to more than a fifth of the constituents of the FTSE All Share Index finding themselves corporate naughty step, including some very big names. Corporate aristocracy such as WPP, BT, Morrisons AstraZeneca, Thomas Cook, HSBC, Reckitt Benckiser, Ladbrokes, Man Group, Pearson, William Hill, Foxtons, Balfour Beatty, Sports Direct and Sky are all there.The creation of the register is a key plank in the Government’s package of corporate governance reforms, driven largely by outrage over bosses pay.
