A review of remuneration in the banking, insurance and superannuation industry shows that senior executives are rarely penalised financially for poor risk management practices or misconduct among staff within their purview. Wayne Byers, the chairman of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority – which undertook the review – says bank executives should be held more accountable, calling for their bonuses to be deferred or forgone. Frank Mirenzi of Moody’s Investors Service notes that many countries have cracked down on executive pay in the banking sector in the wake of the global financial crisis.
