Abstract

Both debtor monitoring and corporate risk-taking are very interested to researchers, but how does these two come together and interplay in terms of executive compensation contract structuring? This paper intends to shed light on this question in the following dimensions. First, we have documented that firms with high leverage (Risk) grant executives with low Vega sensitivity, because bondholder have disincentive to taking risk beyond necessary, and the respective firms are likely to put constrains on executive risk-taking behavior through compensation contract. Furthermore, the results show that such effective monitoring could be accomplished by greater usage of short-term lending and hence requiring firm to roll-over the debt period by period. Lastly, this result is robust weakly to all top five executives, and robust strongly throughout the accounting standard transition period.
