This book provides a model of Z Score prediction conditional on internal parameters of Z Score. Z Score is being evaluated for banks when they need funds. Credit risk is of great concern for most banks as credit risk is that risk that can easily and most likely prompts banks failure. Adequately managing credit risk in financial institutes is critical for survival and growth of the banking industry. Addressing these concerns for enhanced financial decision making in this analysis Artificial Neural Network (ANN) has been used for prediction and estimation of internal ratios for Z score. The sample size selected is a few major players both in the government and private sector of Indian Banking Industry. The analysis incorporates Z Score values to estimate the terms, viability and period for credit.
The current situation of the financial sector clearly shows us that the ways of predicting the future losses, along with their monitoring and management, are rather underdeveloped or being taken as separate mathematical models, thus using only quantitative analysis without the qualitative one. The role of the risk-management system cannot be underestimated, especially after (and during) the world economy crisis. The current problem of the Russian risk-management system is the low power given to the risk-management personnel. That’s why one of the key points to the better risk evaluation is the possibility of the risk-management department to report directly to the board of directors, not to the management of the bank, as it is the shareholders’ money to lose. The goal is to find the proper balance between the risk and the profit while presenting the transparency of the business. It should be done in a clear way, better an algorythm, which can be applied in many organisations by the starting employees. This book presents a sample of such an algorythm.
In this book, one of recently developed risk analysis and management method, which is entitled modified advance programmatic risk analysis and management (MAPRAM), is illustrated. This method is capable to address project failure risks simultaneously including cost, time and quality risks over the whole life cycle of a project. The APRAM model is employed to optimize the allocation of budget reserves through trade-offs between technical and managerial failure risks based on the preferences of the decision maker(s). It allows for checking whether technical and managerial risks meet the thresholds of acceptability. A case study has been presented in order to demonstrate the method accordingly. Light steel frame (LSF) system and conventional construction system (CCS) as the two main possible alternatives for construction of an actual two-story building are compared considering all technical and managerial issues.
This paper addresses especially to those who want to consolidate their credit risk management knowledge for the purpose of discerning in the complexity of the financial world and to understand the ways by which they can optimize the investments financing and to manage risks they face in their activity. Given the importance of credit risk management, a more comprehensive analysis is conducted in order to present the credit risk assessment and mitigating methods, modern approaches on credit risk and related policies and procedures, highlighting the improvements on credit risk approaches under the Basel II Framework.
In an age where companies and financial institutions are keenly focusing on managing the financial risk of their operations, the implementation of quantitative methods and models has been of tremendous help, allowing firms to analyze and manage their risk more efficiently and effectively. However, the focus on quantitative risk management, while important, can sometimes be over-emphasized at the expense of judgement, logic and experience. Market dislocations of the 1990’s have revealed the shortcomings of purely quantitative approaches to risk management – and the need for a strong grounding in the "common sense" aspects of the discipline. At is core, the successful management of risk is largely an "art". In The Simple Rules of Risk, the author, based on over fifteen year’s experience in senior risk management positions around the world, takes a fresh look at the qualitative aspects of risk management. Providing detailed presentation and discussion of the simple rules that should form the core of any effective risk management process, including the 10 "cardinal rules", Erik Banks shows how these, in conjunction with new or existing quantitative procedures, can form the basis of an effective and robust risk management framework.
Economics of Banking presents a thorough overview and analysis of the key aspects of financial intermediation necessary to understand this field. Based on the latest theory, and supporting arguments with practical examples, Hans Keiding discusses the problems of competition, risk taking in banks and the irregularities that may occur as a result. Banks in distress and avoiding bank failures through suitable regulation are also treated in a rigorous, yet easy-to-understand way. Economics of Banking:• treats financial intermediation both from the point of view of the bank itself and from that of society • covers both microeconomics of banking and risk management in banks • offers more complicated mathematics as optional A comprehensive advanced undergraduate or master's level textbook for students in banking, economics and finance who need to get to grips with the economic theory of banks.
The economic growth of any country is ultimately based on the performance of the financial institution especially the banking companies. it is a well know fact that the services offered by Indian banks are well received and recognized by the people who are involving in the money market not only in domestic market but also in foreign market. Though the Indian banks have larger network in terms of branches and employees, the volume of business, the employee’s productivity not at satisfactory level compared with those of other countries banks. It is interestingly noted that the problems out of the recession is not so heavily affected in the Indian banks, though majority of the American and European banks experienced serious problems. This is because of the mind setting of the Indian depositors and continues and serious efforts of the reserve bank of India. In the recent days, the Indian nationalized banks are facing innumerable challenges such as worrying level of NPAs, deteriorating asset quality, and increasing pressure on profitability, asset-liability management liquidity risk management, and market risk management and ever tightening prudential norms.
In the course of climate change it is getting more and more important to develop strategies to adapt Europe''s forests, so that they are prevented from heavy damages in future. For this purpose, research was intensified during the last years. In this context, it is the aim of this scientific work to ascertain the most suitable Forest Management Alternative for British forests. The main disturbances were identified and analysed, nowadays and, under a certain climate change scenario, in future. Thereby four of Britain''s main tree species were regarded: Picea sitchensis, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Quercus spp. A Multi-Criteria-Risk-Analysis as well as a Cost-Benefit Analysis were performed for each country of Great Britain (Wales, Scotland and England). This book contains a lot of knowledge in forest protection and connects the single disturbance agents in a new way. The findings of this book inspire to rethink the common practices in British forestry.
Islamic financing system is based on the framework given by the Shariah. Shariah is basically the rules and principals, which are originated from the Quran and Sunnah. Islamic scholars also elaborated the Islamic rules in Islamic jurisprudence according to the framework of Quran and Sunnah. Furthermore, Islamic banking refers to a system of banking or banking activity that is consistent with Islamic law (Shariah) principles and guided by Islamic economics. Like conventional banks, Islamic banks are exposed to the some kinds of risks.However, in the case of Islamic banks, added attention must be paid to the contractual role of the bank, when analyzing the risks inherent in the bank’s assets and liabilities. Because, Islamic banks are also, exposed to Shariah law risk which is related to the structure and functioning of Shariah boards at the institutional and systemic level. Moreover, the industries of Islamic Finance and Banking are still young so there are many problems that are facing his implementation and growth. Hence,the structure of the Islamic banks can be improved by taking some steps that are presented in this book.
In the wake of the great financial crisis of 2008 the entire industry's practices have come under scrutiny. Everyone from the government to regulators, banks and risk managers are rethinking the best way forward for the financial sector. The stakes are high. Should trends in the industry continue and financial innovations allow the damage of the next crisis to grow exponentially, the endgame could be the sort of mutually assured destruction that topples entire economies. Charting the way forward in financial services reform requires a fundamental reappraisal of how things are done in order to avert disaster in the near future.
This book is very practical in its international usefulness (because current risk practice and understanding is not equal across international boundaries). For example, an accountant in Belgium would want to know what the governance regulations are in that country and what the risk issues are that he/she needs to be aware of. This book covers the international aspect of risk management systems, risk and governance, and risk and accounting. In doing so the book covers topics such as: internal control and corporate governance; risk management systems; integrating risk into performance management systems; risk and audit; governance structures; risk management of pensions; pension scheme risks e.g. hedging derivatives, longevity bonds etc; risk reporting; and the role of the accountant in risk management. There are the case studies through out the book which illustrate by way of concrete practical examples the major themes contained in the book. The book includes highly topical areas such as the Sarbanes Oxley Act and pension risk management.
Target oriented approach in Indian banks has eroded the quality of lending, leading to high level of NPAs that has resulted in negative impact on their profitability due to the necessity of provisions, recoveries and write offs as per RBI guidelines. NPAs also negatively impact the capital adequacy ratio, net worth and credibility of banks. Rising NPAs have direct impact on the bottom line as legally banks cannot book income on such accounts. Indian banks need to be more proactive in all their operations, particularly risk identification and management, to operate profitably in the prevailing milieu. The book discusses credit risk, which is one of the major risks faced by Indian banks because lending policy is a significant driver of NPAs. Analysis reveals that there is a rising cause for concern about NPAs. The parameters indicate a need for initiating strategic imperatives at both micro and macro levels, failing which the situation can spiral out of control. The book is written with the express purpose of analyzing trends in NPAs in Indian banks and putting forth useful suggestions for managing credit risk. It should be of use to banking professionals and finance students.
1.* This book presents a seminal study on natural disasters from managerial as well as politico-legal perspectives. The book proposes that hazards turn into disasters mainly due to governmental incapacities and inefficiencies not only to avert the disasters but also to enable the communities to cope with them without sustaining much loss to their lives and livelihood. It is a must for every environmentalist, public policy-maker, academician, NGO, and civil rights activist. 2.** In recent years disaster risks have been on the rise. However, these disaster risks can be significantly reduced through strategies and actions that seek to decrease vulnerability and exposure to hazards within wider efforts to address poverty and inequality. This publication is timely and well researched endeavour. I felicitate the author for undertaking this pioneering initiative and hope that variety of stakeholders would take full benefit of this publication and contribute to improve the systems and structures dealing with disasters in Pakistan. 1.* Shahab Usto, Lawyer & Academic 2.** Nasir Ali Panhwar, Executive Director, Centre for Environment & Development (CEAD)
The most popular carbon credit used as the offset is the Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) which is the carbon credit generated from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project activity. This thesis examines how to manage risk in the CDM market. Three categories of risks were found: 1) compliance risk; 2) non-creation risk; 3) volume risk. The top-down approach was applied to assess the risks by using the global CDM pipeline data as an input. In the end, the statistically analysis provides the result of assessment from each type of risk. The results show that project type and location have high correlation to the risks. On average, most projects have the volatility of the performance around 25%-40%. To manage risk efficiently, an investor should apply risk factors to discount the expected number of CERs to reflect an individual risk profile of the project. Buying an option or insurance could also help to mitigate and hedge an unforeseen incident to the project.
