2019 Directors' Fees Survey

As the professional body for boards and board members in New Zealand, the IoD recognises the importance of appropriate director remuneration. In order to retain talent around the board table New Zealand directors need to be paid at the right level. 

It is important to ensure that director fees are appropriate to the complexity of the role and to industry benchmarks.

Which is why this Directors' Fees survey is so important.

The 2019 Directors' Fees survey is now closed.


This annual IoD Directors’ Fees Survey achieves depth and coverage by collecting information on directors’ remuneration and duties, from both a company and a member perspective.

Our survey partner, EY, manages this survey on our behalf each year. EY collect and compiles the data and then publishes the overall survey results in the annual IoD Directors’ Fees Report. 

Your participation in this survey is vital. It is only with the continuous ongoing participation of our members each year that we are be able to provide robust, timely data, commentary and analysis.

Participation earns you 2 CPD points (you will need to record these points on your dashboard).

In addition, you receive a free copy of the executive highlights of the survey when the full report has been published in August. 

If you do wish to purchase the full report, you’ll receive a $200 discount off the general IoD member rate as a gesture of our thanks.
