This text focuses on the risks faced by managers of financial institutions and the methods and markets through which these risks are managed. Pertinent information regarding non-bank financial institutions,such as insurance companies and credit unions,provides a more holistic view of the challenges raised by factors such as interest rates,market risk,credit risk,and liquidity risk,among others. The highly regarded text continues to take the same innovative approach as the first,and second editions,focusing on managing return and risk in modern financial institutions. The book's central theme is that the risks faced by financial institution managers,and the methods and markets,through which these risks are managed,are becoming increasingly similar. It has become less of issue whether the institution is chartered as a commercial bank,a savings bank,investment bank,or an insurance company. This edition includes even more coverage of non-bank institutions by adding more examples relating to credit unions and insurance companies.
