   LIVE Webcast  


Event Details:                                                                                                                                                          

Section 956 of the Dodd-Frank Act mandates banks and other financial institutions with $1 billion or more consolidated assets to disclose the structure of their incentive-based compensation arrangements to appropriate federal agencies. The disclosure aims to determine whether or not the incentive structure allows excessive compensation, fees and other benefits that could lead to financial loss. While the regulations are aimed at the big banks, the topic is relevant for financial institutions of all sizes as its impact is expected to reverberate across the entire financial services industry.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a distinguished panel of bank advisers to discuss the critical issues for enhanced compensation reporting. Panel members will share their expertise in a LIVE two-hour Webcast.
