About this book


As financial markets are liberalized, bank management and bank regulators and supervisors are faced with new and complex challenges. In general, bank management is faced with the challenge of managing in a competitive and volatile market environment; bank supervisors have the challenge of establishing the framework that permits risk-taking without endangering the banks' safety and soundness. The book identifies and discusses a set of specific challenges, and suggests approaches that may be used by management and supervisors to surmount them.

It provides the set of tools and guidelines necessary to deal with credit, interest rate and foreign exchange risks in markets where hedging and risk transfer products are not well developed. The coverage of funding and product pricing strategies is particularly relevant.' - Lloyd P. Blenman, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Finance, University of Mississippi

I recommend without any reservation Dr Bascom's Bank Management and Supervision in Developing Financial Markets.' - Leonard R. Whyte, Chief Financial Officer, Banco Do Brasil S.A.
