Remuneration of Mediobanca’s CEO and General Manager

Mediobanca’s CEO and General Manager receive:

  • a base salary;
  • an annual short-term incentive subject to the gateways established in the policies and linked to the achievement of the quantitative/financial performance and qualitative/non-financial performance indicators in individual scorecards which the Board of Directors approves each year upon the proposal of the Remuneration Committee.
    • Each manager’s scorecard sets performance targets within their respective scope of responsibility. For instance, the targets may refer to risk-adjusted profitability; group revenue or the revenue of certain divisions; the profitability or income generated by the individual areas for which they are responsible. Alternatively, they may coincide with other capitalization, liquidity or new business initiative objectives in line with the guidelines in the strategic plan. These performance targets are weighted according to their materiality determined by the Board and considering the effective degree of decisional autonomy.
    • To link to the long-term incentive plan (see below), the annual performance-based pay for the achievement of quantitative/financial objectives is capped at 150% of the annual base salary, although the Board has the power to adjust the cap upward to 160% in order to reward the achievement of non-financial objectives.
    • 60% of performance-based pay is deferred over five years, with 45% paid in cash and 55% in equity. All deferred pay is subject to the performance targets and malus conditions established in the policies. Half of the up-front component is paid in cash and the other half is paid in Mediobanca shares.
  • When it approves the multiannual strategic plan, the Board of Directors may also approve a long-term incentive plan for the CEO and General Manager linked to the achievement of the objectives in the strategic plan.

    Based on their individual scorecards, the pay-out for the achievement of quantitative/financial and qualitative/non-financial targets ranges from 20% to 40% of the CEO’s and General Manager’s gross annual base salary for each year of the plan. The final amount at the end of the plan, based on overall performance, is calculated considering each of the targets in the scorecard and their relative weight.

    At the end of 2019, the Board of Directors approved the long-term incentive plan linked to the 2019-2023 strategic plan. Learn more
     
  • The CEO and General Manager receive directors’ fees but not for serving on the Board Committees. They also receive third-party liability insurance coverage like the other directors, participate in the supplementary pension fund and are eligible for the Mediobanca group’s other management benefits.
  • Until the end of the vesting/holding periods, the CEO is required to hold, even after any stock grants as performance-based pay are effectively vested, a number of Mediobanca shares worth twice the amount of base salary and the General Manager is required to hold shares worth one time such amount (i.e.,  the stock ownership requirement). The equivalent amount of shares – to be reached within five years of the first stock grant – must be held for the entire term of office in order to align senior managers’ interests with those of the shareholders.

Non financial KPI (CEO)

  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Engagement. This objective is related to the “toDEI” project, which represents a further step in the strategic direction undertaken by the Mediobanca Group to achieve sustainable growth which is sensitive to ESG factors. Starting with gender diversity, the Group has set itself the objective of promoting an organizational approach based on understanding, respecting, and valuing all kinds of difference. Quantitative objectives have been defined and disclosed publicly to monitor the balance of female representation among senior management and new recruits and in career advancement. The main drivers for evaluation are delivery of the four projects defined in order to reach the targets: Women in Mediobanca, Hiring Practice, Parenting Support, and Female Empowerment through Mentorship. Provision has also been made for the following targets: i) consolidation of female representation in management positions, increasing from 15.95% (as at 30 June 2022) to 20% at end FY 2026-27; ii) improvement in the gender balance among new recruits, to increase from 38% in FY 2020-21 to parity (50%) by end FY 2026-27.
  • ESG: Planet, Environment & Climate Change to focus on the Group’s ESG initiatives related to environmental sustainability. The main drivers here are: cutting Scope 1 + Scope 2 emissions (market-based) down by 11% vs 2019; planting 2,000 trees; increasing the number of electric/hybrid vehicles in the company car fleet to 72%; continuing with the various strands of the long-term ESG projects to bring the Bank into line with the different regulations, with delivery of the project objectives (principally the first Principles for Responsible Banking report and continued strengthening of the TCFD report).
