ABA Statement on Regulators’ Incentive Compensation Proposal

“Today’s unorthodox decision by the FDIC and other regulators to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking on incentive compensation without all the relevant agencies participating is a disappointing political exercise. The Dodd-Frank Act required that this regulation be a six-agency effort, but as key officials have made clear in recent public statements, significant disagreements remain. While we continue to review the 200-page proposal, we are concerned that the agencies seem to be ignoring the numerous and significant concerns raised by the industry when a nearly identical proposal was introduced in 2016.”
