The article focuses on the impact of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 on corporate governance, especially on executive compensation in the U.S. The authors discuss provisions of the act that could affect executive pay, such as mandatory "say on pay" votes, increased disclosure of executive pay and independence of the compensation committee. They also point out that it demands for companies to disclose the relationship between historical executive pay and the financial performance of companies.
