Four ways to improve the regulation of compensation at MFIs

Ramesh S Arunachalam

The compensation of senior management must be worked out by an independent remuneration committee constituted of knowledgeable members, and this process must be seen to be transparent and fair

As I wrote in the article on the Moneylife website yesterday, the regulation of compensation at microfinance institutions (MFIs) needs to be improved. In this report, I have outlined four strategies that the stakeholders in the Indian microfinance industry (regulators, bankers, investors, credit raters and others, like the associations of MFIs) should seek to achieve in our own little ways. These are practical things to try and implement on the ground, to ensure that processes in the governance of compensation at MFIs become transparent and are indeed perceived to be fair. (Read, "Regulating the compensation awarded to bosses of MFIs".)
