Our surveys are mostly published in German language and can either be downloaded or ordered as printed versions.

A study conducted by Deutsches Aktieninstitut and Ernst & Young (EY) shows that many stock listed companies already provide a share based compensation or intend to implement one.

Companies which do not provide a share plan mainly state that they fear the implementation costs.
