Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Highly recommended to professionals, risk managers and students in risk management who look for a relevant comprehensive view of how risk management expands and evolves towards greater sophistication.

Alain Canac, former Senior Credit Officer at Banque Paribas and IXIS Corporate & Investment Bank

The recent global financial crisis has highlighted the need for all participants in the banking system to understand and intelligently utilize risk management. Updated and expanded, the new edition of Bessis s Risk Management in Banking is the best overall guide to the concepts and tools needed to avoid the next banking crisis. Bessis reveals his roots as both academic and practitioner by his combination of intellectual rigor and pragmatic application. Concisely integrating a wide body of work within a comprehensive analytic framework, the careful exposition as well as practical illustrations will be appreciated by students and bankers alike. Highly recommended!

Stephen Kealhofer, Managing Principal, Research at Diversified Credit Investments

Risk Management in Banking has been a constant companion in my work. Over my career I have developed three different corporate risk management programs and have found Dr. Bessis writing to be highly valuable and especially practical. This updated edition expands greatly on previous volumes and benefits from recent international experiences which have greatly challenged some approaches to the understanding of risk. It is essential reading for those managing risks in today s complex banking environment.

David R. Koenig, Chief Executive Officer, The Governance Fund, LLC and Past Chair, Board of Directors, Professional Risk Managers International Association (PRMIA)

From the Back Cover

Never before has risk management been so important.

Now in its third edition, this seminal work by Joël Bessis has been comprehensively revised and updated to take into account the changing face of risk management.

Fully restructured, featuring new material and discussions on new financial products, derivatives, Basel II, credit models based on time intensity models, implementing risk systems and intensity models of default, it also includes a section on Subprime that discusses the crisis mechanisms and makes numerous references throughout to the recent stressed financial conditions. The book postulates that risk management practices and techniques remain of major importance, if implemented in a sound economic way with proper governance.

Risk Management in Banking, Third Edition considers all aspects of risk management emphasizing the need to understand conceptual and implementation issues of risk management and examining the latest techniques and practical issues, including:

  • Asset–Liability Management
  • Risk regulations and accounting standards
  • Market risk models
  • Credit risk models
  • Dependencies modeling
  • Credit portfolio models
  • Capital Allocation
  • Risk–adjusted performance
  • Credit portfolio management

Building on the considerable success of this classic work, the third edition is an indispensable text for MBA students, practitioners in banking and financial services, bank regulators and auditors alike.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave up on this book for the simple reason that the translation into English is so poor, it is both difficult and frustrating to read and try and make sense of. This would be bad enough in a simple story-book, but for a topic which is inherently complex anyway, clarity of writing is absolutely essential.

Format: Paperback
a very good introduction to risk management in banking covering other aspects of derivatives & their pricing as well as theory of distributions which is required to understand other chapters.
Some more details in PV01 could be useful, at least for the department I'm working on.

Highly recommended.
