Abstract

This paper examines the compensation of CEOs of large, publicly held Japanese firms. Our findings suggest that CEO pay in Japan is determined by a complex mix of organizational, individual, and economic factors. Specifically, our findings indicate that CEO pay is driven strongly by a CEO's tenure in a firm, as well as by a firm's size and capital structure. It is driven to a lesser extent by a firm's profitability and concentration of ownership and by a CEO's credentials.
