Riassunto analitico
The work focuses on compensation structure and risk taking in banking sector across recent financial crisis. Starting with an overview on executives' benefits it proceeds, after a brief analysis of regulation for bank disclosure, with the literature review on executive compensation and risk taking. The empirical research on a banking sample from FTSE 300 implements a regression model in order to test the hypothesis whether compensation structure of the board has incremented bank risk between 2007 and 2010.
