The Bankia case raises many questions. IESE Prof. Jorge Soley and Carlos Sánchez de León analyze the savings bank, from its creation and IPO, to its nationalization and restructuring, which has seen branch closures, layoffs and a new commercial strategy. How much wiggle room does a nationalized bank have? And how will Bankia's woes affect the rest of the Spanish banking system?
While Say-on-Pay policies may not curb excessive remuneration, they do provide other measurable, positive benefits for companies and their shareholders. IESE Prof. Mireia Giné argues that Say-on-Pay measures can be effective for strengthening corporate governance and accountability within the firm, outweighing the time and costs they require.
