Abstract This study analyses the CEO remuneration structure and level for 100 Australian-listed entities. Consistent with expectations, it finds that high-growth firms pay their CEOs a greater proportion of performance-based pay, when equity-based rewards only are considered. High-growth firms also place greater reliance on market and/or non-financial performance standards for the award of performance-based pay. The extent to which performance-based remuneration is used as a component of CEO pay is positively associated with firm size and growth options. Other potential determinants of performance-based pay, such as financial performance, are not significantly associated with the use of performance-based remuneration.
