General principles of the remuneration policy
The remuneration policy must be understood as an instrument of internal governance and risk
management at the bank, and as a result, the main objective in this regard is to align the
objectives of the employees themselves with the long-term interests of the bank. To this end,
the valuation of the components of performance-based remuneration focuses on long-term
results, and takes into consideration all outstanding risks associated with these results.
In this regard, the principles governing this remuneration policy are as follows:
Multiplicity of elements
Prudent and effective risk management
Alignment with long-term interests
Suitable ratio between the fixed and variable components
Internal equality and external competitiveness
Supervision and effectiveness
Flexibility and transparency
Simplicity and individualisation
As well as conducting an annual internal, central and independent assessment of the application
of the Identified Staff’s remuneration policy, Cecabank commissioned Ernst&Young Abogados,
S.L.P. to assess the remuneration policy as an external consultant.
A distinction is made between three groups (hereinafter, in aggregate terms, the Identified Staff)
of staff that have a material impact on the risk profile of the Bank and which would be affected
by the requirements in terms of remunerations:
Group 1: Members of Cecabank’s steering Committee, including the CEO.
Group 2: Employees belonging to the Trading and Equity Sales Divisions.
Group 3: Heads of control functions and members of key Cecabank committees. Cecabank.
