This chapter focuses on the importance of good corporate governance and how it would have helped mitigate some of the effects of the 2008 financial crisis. It begins with a brief overview of measures taken in the wake of the financial crisis. It then addresses what is believed to be persistent governance concerns for executives, non-executives, and shareholders that became apparent during the financial crisis. It also reviews of the proposals presented in the proposed Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) IV Directive and Regulation and considers to what extent they will enhance the corporate governance of financial institutions.

Keywords:   corporate governance, 2008 financial crisis, Capital Requirements Directive IV Directive and Regulation, financial institutions
