Increases understanding of what is happening in the market.

AscentData offers affordable and tailored remuneration analysis for listed companies.


A challenge faced by many organisations with remuneration arrangements is getting the design right so that the reward received aligns with company performance, delivery of company strategy and ultimately, delivery of shareholder value.

AscentData reports are a new and affordable way of benchmarking the pay of your Board and Non-Executive Directors. Our reports take the mystery out of how others are designing their board pay policies and provide you with low-cost insights into the sometimes complex and heavily scrutinised subject of board pay.


Accurate database

AscentData offers an accurate and up-to-date database of publicly disclosed board pay data. AscentData analyses information from public companies to provide simple benchmarking data for your use. Data in our reports is provided in a variety of ways giving you a factual basis when determining the appropriate remuneration levels for your board and executives and the alignment with company strategy. Data may be presented by a variety of segments or selected peer group.

AscentData provides a depth of data which boards and company leaders can use to confidently support their board pay policy, in turn assisting the board in designing a pay policy that aligns with the business strategy and focuses on the generation of value for shareholders.
