Modern Banking focuses on the theory and practice of
banking, and its prospects in the new millennium. The book is
written for courses in banking and finance at Masters/MBA level, or
undergraduate degrees specialising in this area. Bank practitioners
wishing to deepen and broaden their understanding of banking issues
may also be attracted to this book. While they often have
exceptional and detailed knowledge of the areas they have worked
in, busy bankers may be all too unaware of the key broader issues.
Consider the fundamental questions: What is unique about a
bank? and What differentiates it from other financial
institutions? Answering these questions begins to show how
banks should evolve and adapt - or fail. If bankers know the
underlying reasons for why profitable banks exist, it will
help them to devise strategies for sustained growth.
Modern Banking concludes with a set of case
studies that give practical insight into the key issues covered in
the book:

The core banking functions

Different types of banks and diversification of bank

Risk management: issues and techniques

Global regulation: Basel 1 and Basel 2.

Bank regulation in the UK, US, EU, and Japan

Banking in emerging markets

Bank failure and financial crises

Competitive issues, from cost efficiency to mergers and

Case Studies including: Goldman Sachs, Bankers Trust/Deutsche
