In Global Banking, Roy C. Smith and Ingo Walter assess the transformation that is taking place world-wide in the financial industry - its causes, its course, and its consequences. Beginning with an overview of recent developments, the authors consider the major dimensions of international banking, including the issue of cross-border risk evaluation and exposure management and the creation of a viable regulatory framework in a global competitive context. The authors link the field of international commercial banking with international investment banking. They identify the factors that distinguish winners from losers in each activity of global financial services. Global Banking concludes with a section on the problems of strategic position and execution. This book will be essential reading for anyone involved in the worldwide financial industry, as well as students of international banking and financial markets.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Smith and Walter have done an excellent job of providing up-to-date information on recent developments and outlining competitive strategies for the future. Their book is very much hands-on information for those involved in or interested in learning the essentials of how these markets operate. The authors include a large amount of data and many useful diagrams to help the reader understand these changing markets and strategies...This book will be especially useful to business students at the undergraduate and graduate level and to those engaged in global banking. Highly recommended."--CHOICE, R. J. Philips, Colorado State University
