A central theme in the outpouring of analysis on the causes of the global financial crisis is that large financial institutions created substantial amounts of systemic risk, which then was realized and nearly brought down the global financial system. Put in terms of corporate governance, two possibilities emerge. The management of large financial institutions were disloyal to their shareholders, the agents taking more risk than their principals desired, perhaps encouraged by highly incentivised compensation schemes. Alternatively, management loyally took on excessive risk, benefitting the shareholders and externalising the costs to the public. The first possibility suggests a corporate governance response in addition to reform of prudential regulation and resolution authority. The second possibility suggests greater emphasis on regulation, but with the possibility that the corporate governance system could be redesigned to internalise more systemic risk. What is the role of corporate governance in financial system reform? Are corporate governance and the new Financial Regulation complements or substitutes? If complements, how do we design their interaction?
