"Governance of Financial Institutions"

2009. The American Assembly

"Governance of Financial Institutions" is a call for stronger risk management, clearer executive compensation policies, and stronger expectations for (and regulation of) financial-sector governance. The report derives from The American Assembly event held in 2009, which brought together fifty leaders and experts in the financial sector.

In the words of former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker: "Not many discussions of this arcane subject of governance are easy reading.  This summary of the discussions [at the 2009 event] is a kind of masterpiece of clarity that touches on important issues."
