CEO compensation and operational risk

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study examines the impact of operational risk on CEO compensation in the property-liability insurance industry. We find that property-liability CEOs are not penalised for operational risk in terms of cash-based compensation, while they are penalised in terms of their option-based compensation. Our findings also suggest that CEOs are largely insulated from firm level operational losses in terms of their total compensation. These findings have implications for implementing optimal risk-based contracting decisions for CEO compensation contracts.
