CEO and Group Management function

The CEO manages operations within the guidelines and instructions established by the Board. The applicable instruction for the CEO was adopted by the Board on 21 March 2018. The CEO is responsible for compliance with the objectives, policies and strategic plans for the company by the Board. The CEO also produces the requisite information for following the company’s position, earnings, liquidity and development in general, necessary information and decision basis prior to Board meetings, presents issues and justifies proposals for decisions.

The CEO leads the work of the Group Management team and makes decisions in consultation with other members of management. Group Management holds regular meetings at which both strategic and operational issues are discussed. In addition, Group management produces business plans each year, which are followed up via monthly reports. Group management consists of managers of essential business areas within the Nordnet Group.

Remuneration and benefits

The Boards of Nordnet AB (publ), Nordnet Bank AB, Nordnet Pensionsförsäkring AB and Nordnet Livsforsikring AS have, in accordance with established requirements, adopted a remuneration policy in order to establish a compensation system in each company that promotes fair and effective risk management and prevents an excessive risk taking.

Remuneration issues are prepared by each company’s board or, if applicable, the remuneration committee and later approved by each company’s board of directors. Each company’s board analyses all the risks which the Company is or may be exposed to, including the risks associated with the current remuneration policy. Based on the analysis the respective board identifies which employees are deemed to be employees whose work has a significant impact the company’s risk profile or staff that could affect the company’s risk level. Latest admitted analysis can be found here:

Redogörelse för Nordnets ersättningssystem och analys av risker förenade med ersättningssystemet (In Swedish) updated 26 March 2019.

Remuneration and benefits to the CEO and other members of the management team is made up of a fixed amount, pension and other benefits.

Fixed

Fixed remuneration is individual and takes into consideration the individual executive’s areas of responsibility, experience, performance and results achieved. Nordnet is a valuation-governed company, which is why performance is also valued in relation to the company’s values.

Fixed remuneration to former CEO Peter Dahlgren for 2018 amounted to SEK 416,667 (416,667) per month. Fixed remuneration of the current Acting CEO Anders Danielsson amounted to SEK 416,667 per month as of 1 October 2018. For further info, see Note 12 in the Annual Report.

Pension

With the exception of the CEO (see below), the Company has the same policy on pensions for the members of the Company management as for other employees. The pension scheme is a defined contribution plan. The premium for occupational pension insurance is based on age, salary and the basic amounts set out in the prevailing premium plan. For members of Company management who are not resident in Sweden, local rules leading to a pension under the same conditions are applied. The same policy should be applied to future pension commitments.

Pension contributions for the CEO are equivalent to 35 percent of base salary. Regarding pension costs, see the Annual Report for fiscal year 2018.

Other

There are no special benefits for senior executives except for paid medical insurance. All employees have the opportunity to lease a car at cost.

Notice and severance pay
