BDO Report: AIM 100 Directors’ Remuneration Report 2024

The new BDO Report: AIM 100 Directors’ Remuneration Report 2024 is the eighth annual report based on research from the remuneration of directors of AIM listed companies. The latest AIM 100 Directors’ Remuneration Report reveals a stark contrast to last year, where hefty bonuses and strong growth in C-suite remuneration packages were seen in the bounce back following the pandemic. 

2023’s AIM 100 cohort included over twenty new entrants, reflecting some of the economic turbulence of the last couple of years. AIM 100 constituents are an extremely diverse and dynamic set of businesses working across many sectors, where differences in size and experience also contribute to variations in C-Suite salaries.

As the turbulence of 2022 continued into 2023, public markets were rocked, and the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) was heavily affected. This year's report reveals a considerable slow-down in C-Suite salary growth and mixed growth in overall remuneration packages – has global volatility affected the pay for AIM executives?

Key findings from the report include:

  • The median salary for CEOs in 2023 was £363,100 - an increase of 5.4% per annum over the past three years, and an uplift of 4.9% from 2022 when the median salary was £346,000. For CFOs, the median salary for 2023 was £268,000, up 8.5% year-on-year from £246,900. It is a 12.3% per annum increase from three years ago, when the median salary was £212,500.
  • At least 75% of CEOs and CFOs received a bonus in 2023.
  • Bonuses for CEOs made up 33% of total remuneration packages, similar to CFOs where bonuses made up 34% on average.
  • Gender diversity has improved on AIM 100 boards, but female representation remains low at 22%.

Although this report can only provide a snapshot of executive remuneration at a single point in time, it is hoped that it will provide a useful benchmarking resource to allow comparison of remuneration, between directors and their peers.
