Financial Institutions Management: A Risk Management Approach, 4th edition provides an innovative approach that focuses on managing return and risk in modern financial institutions.
The central theme is that the risks faced by financial institutions managers and the methods and markets through which these risks are managed are becoming increasingly similar whether an institution is chartered as a commercial bank, a savings bank, an investment bank, or an insurance company.
Although the traditional nature of each sector’s product activity is analysed, a greater emphasis is placed on new areas of activities such as asset securitisation, post-GFC implications, off-balance-sheet banking, and international banking. This text takes a global view of the subject with insights from financial institutions across the world including in Australia, US, Europe and Asia.
Updated with information on the GFC and volatile markets in general, Financial Institutions Management 4e offers a well-rounded view of the industry, including regulatory, historical and technological perspectives.
Helen Lange’s clear and precise writing style provides a detailed yet accessible text, suitable for undergraduate and more advanced students of financial institutions management.
