New York, NY, September 14, 2013 –(PR.com)– The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Lynda M. Crouse, Partner, Troutman Sanders will speak at the Knowledge Congress’ webcast entitled: “Emerging Issues: Executive Compensation in Banking and Finance.” This event is scheduled for November 20, 2013 from 12:00pm – 2:00pm (ET).
In response to the Federal Reserve’s efforts to reduce the risk of another catastrophic financial crisis, several U.S. banks have recently reduced maximum bonus pay for executives who exceed their financial targets in 2012. More so, there has been much debate as to how the largest corporation’s incentive structures have the ability to impact the economy. In today’s political and economic environments, banks and financial institutions may have to completely overhaul their bonus pay practices to ensure that they won’t be on the Fed’s To-Call list by avoiding violations of related executive compensation laws.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals to help financial executives and HR professionals understand all the significant issues surrounding this critical issue. In addition to regulatory updates, our speakers will also provide an in-depth analysis of the bonus pay patterns in the financial industry and its impact on their businesses and the broader economic environment.
