The initiative follows on the heels of a series of high-profile misconduct ‎cases that ‎came to light in recent years.

The Financial Stability Board (FSB) has developed a toolkit that firms and ‎supervisors can use to reduce misconduct risk and address its ‎widespread incidents. ‎

The new toolkit strengthens governance of misconduct risks in financial ‎institutions and covers information gaps about individuals with a history of ‎misconduct. It also addresses the use of governance mechanisms to mitigate social risk factors that drive misconduct.‎

The toolkit provides a set of options based on the shared experience and ‎diversity of perspective of FSB members in dealing with misconduct issues.‎

The FSB statement further reads: ‎

The toolkit completes a critical element of the FSB’s efforts to promote ‎incentives for good behavior through:‎

  • standards and codes of conduct, such as the FX Global Code, and ‎reforms to benchmark-setting practices;‎
  • the toolkit of measures to address misconduct in wholesale ‎markets developed by the International Organization of Securities ‎Commissions, based on national approaches; and
  • FSB’s guidance on the use of compensation tools to promote proper conduct, which will be followed up by recommendations on national data ‎collection on compensation and conduct.‎
