Purpose — This paper is pre-occupied with how bank governance can be altered to reduce risk taking and engender greater financial stability.
Design/methodology/approach — Its approach is to review existing bank governance arrangements, contemporary challenges, and alternative reforms.
Findings — It is argued that recent reforms are incomplete. Greater countervailing incentives for bank managers and shareholders are required. This prompts an inquiry into the merits and demerits of four types of reform: changes to executive compensation arrangements; the introduction of a liability standard for directors; the removal of limited liability for bank shareholders; and a criminal offence for managers.
Originality/value — Discussion illumines several problems with the current approach to bank governance and provides insights that can help direct future reform.
