A discussion of recently developed regulatory guidelines and best practices, as well as alternatives for public companies, including financial institutions, to consider.
In the aftermath of the financial crisis, financial regulators have become increasingly focused on how compensation plans can or should be structured in order to better align the interests of executives with those of shareholders. In the aftermath of TARP and now the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act, the focus is on how compensation structures may encourage more prudent behavior that is in alignment with an organization's long-term performance, rather than rewarding executives and other employees for achieving short-term gains.
Topics Will Include:
•What we learned from TARP;
•The interagency statement on sound compensation policies for financial institutions;
•Basel III and compensation matters;
•Implementation of the Dodd-Frank provisions regarding incentive compensation;
•Bonus taxes and other regulatory measures;
•Innovative compensation structures;
•Conducting a pay risk assessment;
•Disclosure related issues; and
•Say-on-pay and other governance matters.
