Deutsche Boerse's new boss foregoes bonus scheme

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Frankfurt (dpa) - The new chairman of Deutsche Boerse, the company that operates the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, said on Wednesday that he would forego a bonus scheme following controversy over payments to his predecessor.

"I do not want to have an extra scheme," Theoder Weimer said. Apart from Germany‘s largest stock exchange, Deutsche Boerse operates the Eurex derivatives exchange and the Luxembourg-based Clearstream settlement service.

Weimer said he had made this clear to the supervisory board on taking the post at the beginning of the year. "The discussion around my compensation lasted less than 10 minutes."

His predecessor, Carsten Kengeter, was embroiled in an insider-trading controversy regarding his payment package, which included share options.

In mid-December 2015 he bought 60,000 shares in Deutsche Boerse with the company adding a further 69,000.

Two months later Deutsche Boerse and the London Stock Exchange announced they were looking into a merger. The news immediately drove Deutsche Boerse shares up.

Frankfurt prosecutors have since taken an interest in the case. The merger did not go through, and Kengeter resigned in December following an extraordinary meeting of the board.

"I will be earning 1.5 million euros as a fixed salary," Weimar said. This is the same as Kengeter‘s salary. In addition he will receive a variable fee, which was not further explained.

Weimar said he would also engage in share trading, but this would take place on definite dates in June and would be conducted by an external consultant. "I will have nothing to do with it," he said.
