Remuneration of members of the Management Board

KMG’s Board of Directors determines the remuneration policy and the procedure for assessing performance of members of KMG’s Management Board in line with the Corporate HR Management Standard of Samruk-Kazyna Group that was approved by the decision of the Management Board of Samruk-Kazyna JSC dated 14 December 2017.

Remuneration paid to members of the Management Board for the reporting period (year) is performance-related to encourage them towards the strategic and priority goals outlined in measurable, interrelated, consistent, and balanced motivational KPI scorecards.

A motivational KPI scorecard outlines corporate and functional KPIs.

Remuneration is determined to provide a reasonable and justified ratio of the fixed and variable parts, depending on KMG’s performance and the employee’s personal contribution.

The Nomination and Remuneration Committee of the Board of Directors pre-reviews matters related to building an effective and transparent remuneration framework.
