There are many deep-seated reasons for the current financial turmoil but a key factor has undoubtedly been the serious failings within the corporate governance practices of financial institutions. There have been shortcomings in the risk management and incentive structures; the boards’ supervision was at times weak; disclosure and accounting standards were in some cases inadequate; the institutional investors’ engagement with management was at times, insufficient and, last but not least, the remuneration policy of large institutions contributed to poor corporate governance outcomes.

This book will provide a critical overview and analysis of the key weaknesses, focusing on three main areas: directors’ failure to understand complex company transactions, poor remuneration practices of financial institutions and finally the failure of institutional investor to sufficiently engage with management. The book while largely focused on the UK, will also consider EU developments as well as offering a comparative angle looking at the corporate governance of financial institutions in the US.
