On August 21, 2014, the FDIC’s San Francisco Regional Office will host a teleconference on Risk Management – Corporate Governance.  Effective corporate governance is crucial today given the complexities in the financial industry and the need to balance multiple stakeholder interests.  FDIC examination staff will discuss expectations for ensuring a sound corporate governance framework, with an emphasis on lessons learned from the most recent financial crisis; the value of active and independent boards, strong managers, and good employee training programs; benefits of sound operational, strategic, and contingency plans, including succession plans; the importance of satisfactory management information systems and board reporting; expectations for maintaining strong compliance management systems; and the need to ensure effective vendor management, risk assessment, and audit programs.

The 45-minute presentation will be followed by a 30-minute question and answer session.  To ensure participant questions are addressed, participants will have the opportunity to email their questions in advance to  Questions may also be submitted during the live broadcast.
