Financial Regulation and Supervision

This chapter focuses on the various reports and research on corporate governance of banks that sprang up after the 2008 financial crisis. It examines the Basel Committee of October 2010, one of the first institutions to codify minimum requirements for bank governance. The chapter defines first what corporate governance is and discusses its relevance for banks. It then describes the bank's instruments of deposit insurance and bail-out which has been given new importance due to the recent financial crisis. It explains how these two instruments reduce interests and incentives of taxpayers and bank creditors. It also states the possible legal and regulatory problems that can arise between debt governance and debt-holders, and enumerates proposals in covering these difficulties.

Keywords:   corporate governance, 2008 financial crisis, Basel Committee 2010, bank governance, deposit insurance, bail-out, bank creditor incentives, taxpayer incentives
