Following the international financial crisis 2007-2009, the issue of good corporate governance attracted pronounced interest. The link between poor corporate governance practices and excessive risk taking as well as the particularities of governance in comparison with the governance of non-financial firms resulted in the establishment of new regulatory requirements concerning on the one hand the requirements which should be fulfilled by the management bodies and on the other hand the enhancement of three other areas of governance: remuneration, risk management and internal control.
The corporate governance framework of banks and investment firms consists of specific and detailed legislative rules (CRD IV and MiFID II) and guidelines issued from the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the European Central Bank (ECB) and the national supervisory authorities.
