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.​

As risk-taking is an essential part of the banking industry, banks must practise efficient risk management to ensure survival in uncertain financial climates. Banking operations are specifically affected by fluctuations in interest rates which cause financial imbalance; thus banks are now required to put in place an effective management structure that incorporates risk management efficiency measures that help mitigate the wide range of risks they face. In this book, the authors have developed a new modelling approach to determine banks’ financial risk management by offering detailed insights into the integrated approach of dollar-offset ratio and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), based on derivatives usage. It further analyses the efficiency measurement under stochastic DEA approaches, namely (i) Bootstrap DEA (BDEA), (ii) Sensitivity Analysis and (iii) Chance-Constrained DEA (CCDEA). As demonstrated in the modelling exercise, this integrated approach can be applied to other cases that require risk management efficiency measurement strategies. Additionally, this is the first book to comprehensively review the derivative markets of both the developed and developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region, by examining the differences of risk management efficiency of the banking institutions in these countries. Based on this measurement approach, strategies are provided for banks to improve their strategic risk management practices, as well as to reduce the impacts from external risks, such as changes in interest rates and exchange rates. Furthermore, this book will help banks to keep abreast of recent developments in the field of efficiency studies in management accounting, specifically in relation to hedge accounting, used by banks in the Asia-Pacific region.

Bank Risk Management in Developing Economies: Addressing the Unique Challenges of Domestic Banks provides an up-to-date resource on how domestically-based banks in emerging economies can provide financial services for all economic sectors while also contributing to national economic development policies. Because these types of bank are often exposed to risky sectors, they are usually set apart from foreign subsidiaries, and thus need risk models that foreign-based banks do not address. This book is the first to identify these needs, proposing solutions through the use of case studies and analyses that illustrate how developing economic banking crises are often rooted in managing composite risks. The book represents a departure from classical literature that focuses on assets, liabilities, and balance sheet management, by which developing economy banks, like their counterparts elsewhere, have not fared well. Contains fifty cases that reinforce risk management best practices Provides a consistent chapter format that includes abstract, keywords, learning focus, and outcomes Summaries, questions, and glossaries conclude each chapter

Risk Management and Shareholders' Value in Banking provides an integrated framework for risk measurement, capital management and value creation in banks covering interest rate risk; market risk; credit risk; operational risk; capital regulation; capital management; and value creation. Updated to include coverage of the most recent developments in banking regulation, including comprehensive coverage of the new Basel III regulatory framework the book is structured in six parts. Part I covers the measurement and management of the interest rate risk and liquidity risk on all assets and liabilities of a banking institution. This includes a discussion of gapping models, presented critically through numerical examples and solutions, internal transfer rates, gapping techniques, liquidity risk management. Part II presents portfolio models for market risks, including the “variance/covariance” approach, Monte Carlo / historical simulations, backtesting, alternative risk measures (e.g. expected shortfall) and volatility estimation techniques. Part III addresses credit risk measurement, first on a stand-alone basis, then at a portfolio level; it also includes chapters on scoring models, rating systems, recovery risk, counterparty risk for OTC derivatives, and practical applications of credit risk models. Part IV deals with operational risk before part V goes on to illustrate the main pieces of regulation on bank capital issued by the Basel Committee, the main focus being on Basel 2 (insofar it has not been changed by the latest regulatory wave) and Basel 3. Part VI presents the link between risk and capital in all its implications, and provides the reader with the technical models needed to allocate capital to risk-taking units, set risk-adjusted profitability targets, and optimize the amount and composition of bank capital. By bringing together the core aspects of risk management in banking - models and algorithms, regulation, process engineering and management, and strategic planning – the book provides a unique and consistent framework showing how financial risks can be understood, measured, managed and covered with capital. The book is accompanied by a website which includes a series of excel files with detailed explanations of all the numerical examples shown in the book, as well as solutions to the end of chapter exercises.
