Banking Agencies Issue Final Guidance on Executive Compensation


On June 21, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (collectively, the Banking Agencies) issued final guidance regarding incentive compensation arrangements at financial organizations that are intended to be consistent with safe and sound practices (Guidance). The Guidance applies to all the banking organizations supervised by the Banking Agencies, including national banks; state member banks; state nonmember banks; savings associations; U.S. bank holding companies; savings and loan holding companies; the U.S. operations of foreign banks with a branch, agency or commercial lending company in the United States; and Edge and agreement corporations (each, a Covered Institution). With regard to scope within each Covered Institution, the Guidance applies to senior executives as well as employees who, either individually or as part of a group, have the ability to expose the banking organization to material amounts of risk.
