The Remuneration Consultants Group (RCG) is the professional body for consultants that advise FTSE remuneration committees.  It was formed in 2009 following publication of the Walker Report.

The RCG has developed a common Code of Conduct (the Code), which applies for engagements where we are the independent advisers to a remuneration committee.  The Code is aimed at promoting the provision of objective and independent advice by RCG members.  It includes guidelines which fall under the following broad categories:

  • Integrity

  • Transparency

  • Competence and due care

  • Confidentiality

  • Objectivity

The aim of the RCG is:

  • To promote good practice for consulting to FTSE remuneration committees

  • To receive feedback on the Code

  • To carry out a review of the Code every other year to reflect experience and any changes in changes in market practice
