The recent financial crisis underscored the critical role of financial intermediaries and cast a searching spotlight on their prevailing incentive framework and governance structure. Serious gaps and weaknesses in these areas are now widely seen as contributing their own distinctive role in impairing the effectiveness of the financial system. Shortcomings in regulation itself may have been part of the problem.  How can regulation and regulators best respond?
