Regulation, subordinated debt, and incentive features of CEO compensation in the banking industry

We study CEO compensation in the banking industry by considering banks? unique claim structure in the presence of two types of agency problems: the standard managerial agency problem and the risk-shifting problem between shareholders and debtholders.

We construct an index of the intensity of outsider ...
