About two-thirds of chairmen of the largest U.K. companies expect the euro region to stay intact for the next year, a survey commissioned by executive search consultancy Korn/Ferry Whitehead Mann showed.
The poll also showed weaker support for the U.K. government’s economic policies as half of respondents said the balance between promoting growth and tackling the budget deficit is correct, down from 89 percent in an Ipsos Mori survey in January 2011.
Twenty-nine percent of respondents in Korn/Ferry Whitehead Mann’s Boardroom Pulse survey said shareholders should have a binding vote on executive remuneration. The consultancy last month polled a third of chairmen of companies in the FTSE 100 Index (UKX) of the biggest publicly traded U.K. companies. The survey gave no margin of error.
