FDIC seeks to rein in banker’s pay

FDIC sealDespite opposition from other banking agencies, the FDIC wants to penalize banks for compensation packages that are based on bankers taking too much risk.  Law Professor Cornelius Hurley, director of the Morin Center for Banking and Financial Law, says it’s too bad the FDIC is unwilling to work with other U.S. and international regulators to find a rational approach to bank-compensation practices.

“At a time of financial crisis such as we are experiencing, it is more important than ever that the regulatory agencies coordinate major policy initiatives. The FDIC apparently disagrees and would prefer to blaze its own trail.”
