Regulators' Changing Views on Bank Boards of Directors and Governance

Aired: Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Corporate governance is evolving and is increasingly relevant to complying with regulatory requirements, managing risk, and creating a foundation for a bank's success. The Federal Reserve Board has released proposed supervisory expectations for banks and boards of directors, which give hope that regulators will accept a return to the core mission of bank directors, rather than the post-crisis narrow focus on compliance issues.

This 90-minute recording discusses recent and emerging trends in corporate governance and how banks can alter their governance structure in a way that better manages risk and positions the bank for future growth. Bankers can be proactive and use the Federal Reserve's stated new approach in current examinations. Get your questions answered!

This recording focuses on:

  • Understanding the duties of care, loyalty, disclosure and confidentiality
  • The recent trends in bank corporate governance
  • Are these trends productive or counterproductive and how can they be incorporated into a bank's existing governance structure?
  • How can bankers make use of this information in exams today?
  • The importance of board composition and succession to the future of the enterprise
  • How the banking agencies are challenging traditional concepts of fiduciary duty and the potential impact on director and officer liability and recruitment


  • Hu Benton, Vice President, Banking Policy, American Bankers Association (moderator)
