Compensation philosophy and guiding principles
Vontobel’s corporate policy is also reflected in our remuneration concept, which inspires employees at all levels to achieve common and individual goals. A holistic approach is an essential part of this.
Our remuneration concept is based on the idea of a compensation system that reconciles the interests of all stakeholders. A long-term shareholder plan takes into consideration risk-related aspects as well. Thus, we create incentives for employees to work towards and promote the success and stability of Vontobel – in line with the principles set out in circular 2010/1 "Remuneration schemes" published by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). The implementation of these principles is not compulsory; nevertheless, we have chosen to adopt its essential aspects.
The objectives of our compensation system at a glance:
- To support a performance, risk and team-oriented culture.
- To promote our employees’ entrepreneurial ideas and actions.
- To encourage a long-term commitment to the company by the top performers.
- To position Vontobel as a competitive employer.
