Executive compensation based on asset values

Hans Byström

Economics Bulletin, 2012, vol. 32, issue 2, 1504-1508

Abstract: This paper describes how credit default swaps could be employed to create performance based executive compensation portfolios that reflect the value of a firm's debt as well as equity; i.e. the total value of all a firm's assets. We define so-called Asset Value Unit (AVU) compensation portfolios that work both for executive- and non-executive pay schemes in financial as well as non-financial firms.
