Yesterday seven federal agencies jointly finalized a proposed rule under Section 956 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that would subject financial institutions with $1 billion of assets to substantive and procedural requirements relating to incentive-based compensation. Financial institutions with $50 billion of assets would be subject to additional substantive requirements, including mandatory deferral of such compensation. These requirements would apply to a wide array of financial institutions, including banks, broker-dealers and investment advisers. Other institutions also may be affected.
