ABSTRACT
The article offers advice for bank and thrift institutions on dealing with shareholder activists. The pursuit of corporate governance reform by shareholder-activists is creating additional challenges for banks and thrift institutions. It emphasizes the need for the institution to identify its strengths and weakness including shareholder base, firm's market value to its peers and activist communication policies and strategic planning. Unity of the bank or thrift's board of directors should also be assessed.
