Abstract:This study examines the impact of CEO compensation on firm performance for Scandinavian firms. The existing literature presents different findings on the impact of CEO compensation on firm performance. Two important theories, the agency theory and stakeholder theory are described. The test sample consists of Scandinavian firms that had a spot on the Forbes Global 2000 List of 2016. The impact of CEO compensation on firm performance is tested by using the performance measures of ROE and ROA. The results show a non-significant negative relationship between CEO compensation and firm performance.
