Special Issue - Contemporary Issues in Banking

The financial crisis revealed limitations and deficiencies in the corporate governance of financial institutions on both sides of the Atlantic. Policy responses have introduced regulations focused on: greater oversight of risk‐taking; tougher capital and liquidity requirements; greater transparency on the remuneration packages paid to directors and senior management; and new rules on the composition of such packages. Banks have also been forced to boost capital, hold more liquidity and to implement improved risk, pay and operational oversight. Many have consequently taken greater interest in promoting good practices, strengthening corporate governance, fostering transparency and increasing sensitivity to environmental and socioeconomic issues. This special issue of Global Policy contributes to ongoing debates by analysing these and newer movements within the global banking industry.
