The purpose of this paper is to explain empirically the relationship between the remuneration levels of a sample of listed Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) directors and firm performance. The paper also investigates whether deviations from the optimal directors’ remuneration level reduce firm performance.
The study uses a panel data regression analysis of 802 AIM-listed SMEs over an eight-year period (2005-2012).
Compared with previous literature on directors’ remuneration, this paper focuses on AIM-listed SMEs and our finding of a concave relationship between directors’ remuneration level and performance of leads us to recommend that firms, especially SMEs should endeavour to determine the optimal level of directors’ remuneration to maximise performance.
