About Shareholder Value Advisors Inc.

Shareholder Value Advisors (SVA) is a consulting firm that helps companies improve performance through more effective business unit incentives.

Effective business unit incentives require (1) a well-designed measure of business value added, (2) accurate estimates of competitive pay and (3) a plan design that achieves the three basic objectives of executive pay: providing strong incentives to increase shareholder value, retaining key talent and limiting shareholder cost.

SVA’s distinctive capability is better measurement.  SVA’s work on measuring business value added isolates management’s contribution to value by adjusting for capital investment, investor expectations and peer company performance.  SVA’s work on competitive pay uses multiple regression models to get more accurate market rates by controlling for position, industry, size, profitability and risk.  SVA’s work on plan design uses a distinctive framework to measure alignment, incentive strength and the company’s pay premium at industry average performance using realizable as well as grant date pay.
