Product Description

Review

“...an easily digestible insight into the complex, technical world of banking regulation.” (economia, February 2014)

From the Inside Flap

Better Banking by Adrian Docherty and Frank Viort is an outstanding introduction to the recent financial crisis.  It starts from first principles and provides many useful new insights, delivering detailed case studies of the banks that got into trouble as well as critiques of past and proposed regulations.  I recommend this book to those who want to learn the basics about banking crises and to those looking for a fresh and sophisticated perspective on risk taking by banks.”
Douglas W. Diamond, Merton H. Miller Distinguished Service Professor of Finance, University of Chicago Booth School of Business

"Adrian Docherty and Franck Viort make a compelling and timely case for better banking.  They provide a critical analysis of recent banking history and an informed challenge to those developing future policy.  With the banking crisis far from over, Better Banking is required reading for all those with an interest in a sustainable financial system."
Tim Wright, CEO, Willis International 

"Better Banking is a fresh and insightful primer on the financial crisis, based on first–hand experience of the banking industry. Docherty and Viort′s blueprint for action is an entirely new contribution to the global debate on financial regulation."
Benoît Coeuré, Member of the Executive Board, European Central Bank

"This book is a page–turner on banking regulation, which in itself makes it a must–read. It goes beyond conventional wisdom and questions the very essence of what banks are here for in the first place. In that sense, it also has broader implications and I, for one, would very much like Adrian Docherty′s and Franck Viort′s ideas to be implemented in regulating the insurance sector and in the financial area more generally."
Pierre Michel, Deputy–CEO, Caisse Centrale de Réassurance / Former Insurance and Pension Funds Expert, European Commission

“Docherty and Viort have a clear understanding of what went wrong in the financial crisis, and why. They also offer some thought provoking ideas for more robust bank regulation in the future. Furthermore, they write in an accessible and lucid way about complex problems.”
―Howard Davies, Professor, Sciences–Po / Former Chairman, FSA

“Bankers and regulators should read this book.  That way, they might get it right next time around”
Adam Seale, CEO, Interactive I

Adrian Docherty and Frank Viort's book provides a solid, comprehensive and easy-to-read primer on how banks operate and are regulated today, following the unprecedented global regulatory response that followed the financial crisis of 2008.

The authors do not hesitate to challenge the conventional wisdom behind many of the recent regulatory initiatives and importantly offer some truly thought provoking, cutting edge new ideas that, if adopted, may genuinely make banking safer and more efficient.

A must read for all bankers interested in the future of their industry, and for anyone seriously contemplating a career in banking!

My favourite part was the case studies. Great to see so many in one place. The history and background of Basel rules also very good - the material has been put down in an approachable manner (thinking as an occasional trainer of this material).

Whilst the historical analysis is relatively uncontraversial the proposals for how things could be changed would provoke more debate. Many (myself included) may have differences of opinion.

All in, a well researched and thoughtful piece of work that I would recommend.

A highly comprehensive and thoughtful account of the current financial crisis, banks' role in it, and how to better prepare for crises in the future. Superbly written and accessible description of how banks operate, with very useful case studies. A great book for the practitioner or market observer.
