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 a 2009 American Assembly event which brought together 50 leaders and experts on 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."
