The module aims at providing students with a thorough understanding of the main corporate governance problems pertaining to the financial sector. This is necessary as the governance of financial institutions is profoundly different from that of non financial institutions. The module will investigate how banks, investment funds and insurance companies are governed and controlled, the link between compensation, performance and risk, and whether structural separation in banking (also called ring fencing) will contribute to simplify banks' governance.
