Curbing the excess of banks’ pay


FT Weekend – 8-9/03/2008

Institute of International Finance – association of global banks
Meeting @Rio de Janeiro

“by paying huge bonuses on the basis of short-term performance when negative bonuses are impossible, banks create huge incentives to disguise risk-taking as a value creation”.

NEEDED: a system of rewards that better aligns the interests of the decision-makers with that of the bank as a whole, shareholders and the public.

– through bail-outs and rescues for the reckless
– system in bank’s interests

Difficulty for the bank – to act on its own

+ CODE of conduct
