Klarna has clear remuneration policies, instructions and processes, securing sound remuneration structures throughout the organization.


Klarna’s remuneration structure

Klarna has a remuneration structure that recognizes the importance of well-balanced but differentiated remuneration structures, based on business and local market needs, as well as the importance of being consistent with and to promote sound and efficient risk management not encouraging excessive risk-taking and short-term profits or counteracting Klarna’s long term interests.

The aim with the remuneration structure is to both support the ability to attract and retain talent in every position and to support equal and fair treatment, but also to ensure that remuneration in Klarna is aligned with efficient risk management and compliant with existing regulations.

Klarna’s Board has confirmed this in the adopted Remuneration Policy, which is revised as necessary, and at least annually.
