News - Row brewing over Executive Pay

Controversy over pay at taxpayer-backed firms is expected to be stoked as Direct Line plans to hand out multimillion-pound share bonuses to bosses when it floats on the stock market, it has been reported in MSN Money.

Insurance giant Direct Line Group - which is owned by part-nationalised Royal Bank of Scotland - is set to offer its chief executive Paul Geddes and finance chief John Reizenstein "golden handcuff" deals designed to lock-in senior staff following the initial public offering, according to The Sunday Times.

Mr Geddes is thought to be in line to receive a long-term incentive package worth around £3 million in shares when the Churchill and Direct Line insurance firm makes its stock market debut.

Direct Line declined to comment, but it is understood the bonus schemes will pay out only if the senior staff hit performance targets and stay at the firm for at least three years. The potential windfalls could create a backlash amid public anger over pay at part-nationalised banks, while it may also anger staff as Direct Line cuts jobs.

RBS, which is 82% owned by the State, revealed plans to spin off Direct Line on Friday. It must sell its interest in Direct Line Group, which also includes the Green Flag and Privilege brands, under a European-imposed condition of its £45 billion government bailout received in 2009.

Even if you never sell the bags in order to profit, just want to get psychological satisfaction, which should keep their eyes open, do not buy a quarter of those who have been given too many fashion elements, while it becomes out of date shortly after the of the bag. www.styles-shops.com

The bigger your business gets the more at risk it will be from potential threats as the strain on your network increases. More users to the back end increase the chance of a virus and the more software that is developed for your business to operate smoothly the more chance there is of being a loophole that an attacker can manipulate. http://www.abusiness-ideas.com

It should be noted that whilst ordering papers for sale at paper writing service, you can get unkind attitude. In case you feel that the bureau is trying to cheat you, don't buy term paper from it.
