On 2 July 2021, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published revised Guidelines on sound remuneration policies. This update takes into account the amendments introduced by the Fifth Capital Requirements Directive in relation to institutions’ sound remuneration policies and, in particular, the requirement that remuneration policies should be gender neutral. The revised Guidelines also consider supervisory practices and clarify some aspects of retention bonuses and severance pays. The revised Guidelines will apply from 31 December 2021.
