Product description

Review

'Thomas Huertas' book provides an interesting and timely account by a regulatory expert of all the reforms that are being enacted for a safer resolution of systemically important financial institutions. A must read for every supervisor, regulator, financial policymaker and member of a bank's Board of Directors or Executive Committee.'
- Axel Weber, Chairman, UBS

'Safe to Fail: How Resolution will Revolutionise Banking is a worthy successor to Huertas's excellent book Crisis: Cause, Containment and Cure. Huertas is a rigorously-trained economist, former banker and strategic planner who acted as a key regulator during the crisis. He is therefore uniquely qualified to analyse the future of banking in the post-crisis world. Beginning from the observation that too big to fail is too costly to continue he argues the way forward depends on making banks safe to fail. This innovative approach offers substantial potential advantages to banks, regulators and, most importantly, the general public. Although his analysis is rigorous, Huertas writes with remarkable lucidity. Moreover, his talent for aphorisms makes the book a pleasure to read and accessible to anyone who wants to understand the critical choices that will determine the future of banking.'
- Richard J. Herring, Jacob Safra Professor of International Banking, The Wharton School

'Public policy in this area is of great significance for the robustness and stability of the global financial system. It needs to be understood and to inspire confidence in governments, politicians, regulators and, of course, banks themselves. But the issues to be tackled in reaching the desirable end-state are protean in their complexity. This book provides an authoritative and very clear summary guide which deserves to be, and is likely to become, the definitive reference handbook. I commend it most warmly.'
- Sir David Walker, Chairman, Barclays
