Commenting ahead of Airbus’s annual general meeting on Thursday, Ashley Hamilton Claxton, Head of Responsible Investment at RLAM, said:

“We are voting against the remuneration at Airbus at the AGM on 16 April. This reflects our serious concerns about the ongoing awards to the former CEO following a widely publicised bribery scandal to secure airplane orders. We would urge the Board of Airbus to reassess whether the future vesting of the performance related elements of Mr. Enders’ pay is still appropriate.”

RLAM held 0.05% of Airbus, worth around £21.7m as of 8th April 2020.
