Saunders and Cornett’s Financial Institutions Management: A Risk Management Approach, 6th edition focuses on managing return and risk in modern financial institutions. The central theme is that the risks faced by financial institutions managers and the methods and markets through which these risks are managed are becoming increasingly similar whether an institution is chartered as a commercial bank, a savings bank, an investment bank, or an insurance company. Although the traditional nature of each sector’s product activity is analyzed, a greater emphasis is placed on new areas of activities such as asset securitization, off-balance-sheet banking, and international banking.

Enterprise risk management must be closely linked to the strategy to promote compliance with the institution’s mission, vision and objectives. Currently, risks emerge from internal and external sources. Likewise, the different stakeholders demand greater transparency and communication: on the other hand, technology generates a changing business environment, and customer wishes evolve. These situations force institutions to have an adequate risk management framework. In this book, the reader will obtain the appropriate tools to manage the various risks to which a financial institution is exposed. Thus, he will get frameworks, standards, methodology, techniques and tools to be able to identify, evaluate, manage, monitor, communicate and follow up on the risks that could affect the institutions. Comprehensive risk management should not be isolated in one risk area; on the contrary, it must be disseminated across all levels of the organization, allowing for better management. Having three lines of defense for proper management is a must. Permeating a risk culture is required so that people make decisions considering the risk. That employees know the risk appetite of the institutions is vital for that decision making. Enterprise risk management in financial institutions provides us with these vital tools to enhance risk management in institutions, allowing their long-term development and improving the chances of meeting objectives. It provides a comprehensive view of the different risks that could affect organizations and presents specific tools to improve management.
The recent turmoil on financial markets has made evident the importance of efficient liquidity risk management for the stability of banks. The measurement and management of liquidity risk must take into account economic factors such as the impact area, the timeframe of the analysis, the origin and the economic scenario in which the risk becomes manifest. Basel III, among other things, has introduced harmonized international minimum requirements and has developed global liquidity standards and supervisory monitoring procedures. The short book analyses the economic impact of the new regulation on profitability, on assets composition and business mix, on liabilities structure and replacement effects on banking and financial products.
A value management framework designed specifically for banking and insurance The Value Management Handbook is a comprehensive, practical reference written specifically for bank and insurance valuation and value management. Spelling out how the finance and risk functions add value in their respective spheres, this book presents a framework for measuring – and more importantly, influencing – the value of the firm from the position of the CFO and CRO. Case studies illustrating value-enhancing initiatives are designed to help Heads of Strategy offer CEOs concrete ideas toward creating more value, and discussion of "hard" and "soft" skills put CFOs and CROs in a position to better influence strategy and operations. The challenge of financial services valuation is addressed in terms of the roles of risk and capital, and business-specific "value trees" demonstrate the source of successful value enhancement initiatives. While most value management resources fail to adequately address the unique role of risk and capital in banks, insurance, and asset management, this book fills the gap by providing concrete, business-specific information that connects management actions and value creation, helping readers to: Measure value accurately for more productive value-based management initiatives and evaluation of growth opportunities Apply a quantitative, risk-adjusted value management framework reconciled with the way financial services shares are valued by the market Develop a value set specific to the industry to inspire initiatives that increase the firm's value Study the quantitative and qualitative management frameworks that move CFOs and CROs from measurement to management The roles of CFO and CRO in financial firms have changed dramatically over the past decade, requiring business savvy and the ability to challenge the CEO. The Value Management Handbook provides the expert guidance that leads CFOs and CROs toward better information, better insight, and better decisions.
