Corporate Governance in the Banking and Financial Services Industries

A symposium jointly sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Journal of Financial Intermediation, and the Salomon Center and Department of Finance at New York University's Stern School of Business.
November 8-9, 2001

Conference Description
Few public policy issues have moved to center stage as quickly as corporate governance. Shareholders, creditors, regulators, and academics are all examining decision making in corporate and other organizational forms and, in some cases, are proposing changes to governance structures to enhance efficiency and accountability. In the banking and financial services industries, governance and board oversight received close attention during the turbulent late-1980s. A recurring theme among the interested parties is that poor governance played an important role in many serious problems. With this issue in mind, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Journal of Financial Intermediation, and the Salomon Center and Department of Finance at New York University's Stern School of Business have organized a symposium to foster a better understanding of managerial decision making and sound corporate governance practices in financial institutions.
