Group CEO

Forms of Remuneration

The remuneration of the Group CEO, Kari Stadigh, is reviewed annually and is based on the Sampo Group Remuneration Principles. The remuneration includes fixed salary, fringe benefits and a defined contribution pension contract, and may also include payments from short-term incentive programs and long-term incentive schemes.

Short-term Incentives

The Board of Directors decides on one-year short-term incentive programs separately each year and on cash payouts from the programs in the following year. The Group CEO participates in a one-year short-term incentive program, where the payout is triggered by the operative result of Sampo and the outcome is determined on the basis of the Sampo Group result and the individual performance of the Group CEO. The maximum amount that can be paid to the Group CEO from the program corresponds to nine months’ fixed salary. Part of the payout shall be deferred for at least three years as required in the regulatory framework applicable to Sampo.

Long-term Incentives

The Board of Directors decides on multiannual long-term incentive schemes and on cash payouts from the schemes. The Group CEO participates in the long-term incentive scheme 2014:1 for Sampo Group’s key employees, where the outcome is determined on the basis of Sampo’s share price development over a period of three to five years starting from the issue of the scheme. The payout is divided into three annual instalments of 30 per cent, 35 per cent, and 35 per cent respectively. The Group CEO has been allocated 500,000 incentive units. The value of one incentive unit is calculated as the difference between the trade-weighted average price of the Sampo A share at the time of payment and the dividend-adjusted starting price. In addition to the share price development, the calculation of the value of one incentive unit takes into account the performance of the insurance margin of If P&C and the return on capital at risk as further specified in the terms of the incentive scheme. The scheme contains a cap for maximum payout. At payout, the Group CEO is obliged to purchase Sampo A shares with 60 per cent of each instalment after deducting income tax and other comparable charges. The shares are subject to disposal restrictions for three years, after which the Board of Directors shall decide on the possible release.

Pension Benefits

The Group CEO is entitled to a defined contribution pension in accordance with the pension contract in force. The annual pension premium is fixed at EUR 400,000. According to the pension contract, pension starts at the age of 63, but the start of the pension can be postponed until the age of 70. If the employment relationship ends before the age of 63, the Group CEO has the right to start the pension before the age of 63. 

Termination of Employment

The notice period for terminating the service contract of the Group CEO is six months, from which period the Group CEO is entitled to receive salary. The Group CEO is not entitled to severance compensation.
