Abstract

The paper analyzes some recent rules (Directive 2013/36/EU, called CRD IV and Directive 2014/65/EU, called MIFID 2) oriented towards a modern financial management focused on people with great expertise and managing abilities, but at the same time diversified by age, sex, geographic provenience and experience. The goal is to identify ways to produce a strategic plan filled of the most different contributions to provide innovative solutions. The introduction of more diversified administrative organs is intended to contrast the “group mentality phenomenon”, through the representation of “a variety of points of view and experiences”. This research highlights the fact that women move in an under-confidence context (unlike men, who are usually overconfident) that often causes them to accept decisions even when not fully in agreement. Moving on to the identification of the reasons that justify a more appropriate placement of women in the banking and finance enterprises, the Author emphasizes the need for a particular technical qualification of the activity performed by the board of administration and control of the institutions belonging to this sector. Indeed, the various options (from organization to investment) for decisions oriented towards sound and prudent management require the ability to assess a balanced evaluation of information data remitted to the boards of directors and control in the reports that the structure periodically prepares.
