Consultation Paper

Clawback - CP6/14

1. The Remuneration Code (The Senior Management Arrangements, Systems and Controls (SYSC) 19A sourcebook of the PRA’s Handbook) sets out the standards that banks, building societies and designated investment firms have to meet when setting pay and bonus awards for their staff. It aims to ensure that firms’ remuneration practices are consistent with effective risk management. Any amendments will have no impact on the PRA’s existing approach to proportionality: Remuneration standards: the application of proportionality.
