In this notice, OTS is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection. Title of Proposal: Sound Incentive Compensation Guidance. OMB Number: 1550–0NEW. Form Number: N/A. Description: The guidance is based on three key principles that are designed to ensure that incentive compensation arrangements at a financial institution do not encourage employees to take excessive risks. These principles provide that incentive compensation arrangements should: • Provide employees incentives that do not encourage excessive risk-taking beyond the organization’s ability to effectively identify and manage risk; • Be compatible with effective controls and risk management; and • Be supported by strong corporate governance, including active and effective oversight by the organization’s board of directors. These principles and the guidance are consistent with the Principles for Sound Compensation Practices adopted by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) in April 2009, as well as the Implementation Standards for those principles issued by the FSB in September 2009. This guidance will promote the prompt improvement of incentive compensation practices in the banking industry by providing a common mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Apr 28, 2010 Jkt 220001 prudential foundation for incentive compensation arrangements across banking organizations and promoting the overall movement of the industry towards better practices. Supervisory action could play a critical role in addressing misaligned compensation incentives, especially where issues of competition may make it difficult for individual firms to act alone. Through their actions, supervisors could help to better align the interests of managers and other employees with organizations’ long-term health and reduce concerns that making prudent modifications to incentive compensation arrangements might have adverse competitive consequences.
