Abstract

Following the global financial crisis there was a strong recognition of the need for robust standards in the governance of banks. The 2015 Basel Recommendations build on previous corporate governance guidelines issued by the BCBS as well as draw from standards issued by the OECD and the Financial Stability Board. Specifically the recommendations, which have practical implications for banks regulators alike, have an increased focus on risk and aim to improve corporate governance in banking institutions by restating and reinforcing the oversight and risk governance role of bank boards and board committees; identifying the roles that different parts of banks have for identifying and managing risk and strengthening checks and balances. The Recommendations join other efforts to provide a more robust global financial architecture that will maintain the financial sustainability which is needed for economic growth, social stability and inclusive societies.
