It's also noteworthy to mention that if you are using this book you're probably using it in a class. Heads up - the chapter problem solution keys provided by your professor from the publisher (the MSWord files the publisher distributes) contain a surprisingly large number of trivial errors here -- ie. incorrect algebra and other errors. The problems are otherwise helpful in terms of understanding the material nonetheless.
In the last part there is a good section which describes how to manage risks , including liabilty and liquidity management,deposit insurance, capital adequacy, geographic diversification, derivatives, the new credit risk management techniques and securitization.
I had the chance to have Profesor Saunders as a risk management teacher and I only say that as his classes, his book is great. It shows you the best introduction to risk management. It discusses about financial institutions (banks, insurance and securities). That book just helped me to see financial institutions under the risk focus. I really recommend this book to understand risk management.
This book doesn't. It tries to explain the business in a risk management point of view, regardless you are an incumbent in banking or assurance.
All types of risk: market, credit, equity, operational,and so forth. The style is very easy, the concepts clear, and the maths according to a first global banking risk book. Easy to read and understand. Furthermore, it adds some all time-bank situations in order to put the theory into the ground.
I used this text to complete a finance elective requirement for the MBA.
It explained the banking concepts well, I felt prepared for class and was able to correctly complete the course assignments.
Professor Saunders describes a very broad
range of risks run by a Financial Institution.
A particularly good description is given
for interest rate risk management of a
standard banking portfolio.
