The global financial crisis has led to more and more focus on corporate governance and financial institutions. There has been much coverage in the media about various corporate governance-related issues in banks and other financial institutions, such as executive directors’ remuneration and bankers’ bonuses, board composition and board diversity. This book, dedicated to the corporate governance of banks and other financial institutions, makes a timely and accessible contribution to the literature in this area.

The contributors are experts in their field with in-depth knowledge of the various countries covered in this book, including Italy, the UK, Germany, the US, China, Japan, Brazil, Russia, Australia and Nigeria, plus a chapter on Islamic financial institutions. Overall, the engagingly written chapters highlight many of the shortcomings of corporate governance which have led to financial scandals, whilst indicating areas where corporate governance can be strengthened and improved.

Adding depth and accessibility to existing corporate governance books, this Handbook is ideal as a teaching and learning tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students. For directors and the general business and wider stakeholder communities concerned with corporate governance, it is an essential resource.
‘This stimulating collection of essays on individual financial institutions and on banking arrangements in particular countries is an important contribution to the literature on a key area of corporate governance.’
– Brian R. Cheffins, University of Cambridge, UK

‘Mallin’s book is a collection of essays, which all give a good understanding of how corporate governance problems are dealt with by very different financial institutions and their regulatory authorities all over the world. . . The book is recommended to readers, who want to learn more about governance of financial institutions in the selected sample of countries.’
