The Financial Stability Act contains a number of provisions designed to address the problem of excessive compensation. Most are procedural. A huge exception is the prohibition on "excessive" compensation by financial institutions subject to FDIC insurance. We will discuss some of these requirements over the next several posts.
Subtitle E includes a number of provisions that would tighten regulation of the executive compensation process. These include:
Sec. 951. Shareholder vote on executive compensation disclosures.
Sec. 952. Shareholder vote on golden parachute policy.
Sec. 953. Compensation committee independence.
Sec. 954. Executive compensation disclosures.
Sec. 955. Clawback.
Sec. 956. Disclosure regarding employee hedging.
Sec. 957. Compensation standards for holding companies of depository institutions.
Sec. 958. Higher capital charges.
