Admiral Group - AGM 25 April 2019

Item 2: Approve the Remuneration Report

For the CFO, there are concerns over the potential for excessive variable remuneration under the LTIP and a bonus which does not appear to be linked with performance.  For the CEO, there are concerns that there is no incentive pay, though the CEO's own shareholding is considered sufficient to align his interest's with the Company's long-term results. The quantum is quite moderate by UK standards for both executives.  Nevertheless, as there is no vote on policy in the current year in which to express concerns over the CFO's incentive plans, we recommend shareholders oppose.
