Book Description

Publication Date: January 14, 2005 | ISBN-10: 0470095008 | ISBN-13: 978-0470095003 | Edition: 1
Modern Banking focuses on the theory and practice of banking, and its prospects in the new millennium. The book is written for courses in banking and finance at Masters/MBA level, or undergraduate degrees specialising in this area. Bank practitioners wishing to deepen and broaden their understanding of banking issues may also be attracted to this book. While they often have exceptional and detailed knowledge of the areas they have worked in, busy bankers may be all too unaware of the key broader issues. Consider the fundamental questions: What is unique about a bank? and What differentiates it from other financial institutions? Answering these questions begins to show how banks should evolve and adapt - or fail. If bankers know the underlying reasons for why profitable banks exist, it will help them to devise strategies for sustained growth.

Modern Banking concludes with a set of case studies that give practical insight into the key issues covered in the book:

  • The core banking functions
  • Different types of banks and diversification of bank activities
  • Risk management: issues and techniques
  • Global regulation: Basel 1 and Basel 2.
  • Bank regulation in the UK, US, EU, and Japan
  • Banking in emerging markets
  • Bank failure and financial crises
  • Competitive issues, from cost efficiency to mergers and acquisitions
  • Case Studies including: Goldman Sachs, Bankers Trust/Deutsche Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui, Bancomer
 

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Modern Banking is a sequel to the highly successful Modern Banking in Theory and Practice, first published in 1996. Over the last decade many aspects of banking have changed considerably, though the key features that distinguish banks from other financial institutions remain. Some might question the need for a book on banking rather than one on financial institutions - while banks remain special and unique to the financial sector, books need to be devoted to them.

Modern Banking focuses on the theory and practice of banking, and its prospects in the new millennium. The book is written for courses in banking and finance at Masters/MBA level, or undergraduate degrees specialising in this area. Bank practitioners wishing to deepen and broaden their understanding of banking issues may also be attracted to this book. While they often have exceptional and detailed knowledge of the areas they have worked in, busy bankers may be all too unaware of the key broader issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction into international banking January 31, 2006
Format:Paperback
This book is an overview of the international banking industry. Instead of focusing on banking in a particular country, the author discussed general types of banks, banking services, banking regulations in different countries, ways how the regulations influence banking in countries with various types of economy and financial systems (USA, Britain, EU countries, Japan, emerging economies of Russia, China, Latin America and Islamic countries). The large part of the book is devoted to analysis of bank failures and survival of banks in financial crises. The book contains enormous amount of compressed material and real-world examples.

The book is written in clear language and can be read without prior knowledge in the field, except the chapter on the competitive issues in banking, which requires some understanding of basic methods of Econometrics. The book gives brief introduction into financial securities and derivatives, but some prior knowledge is preferable for better understanding of the material.

The book was written with the particular university course in mind, but the scope and depth of the presented material make it useful for anyone who wishes to broaden his understanding of international finance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and updated March 25, 2006
Format:Paperback
This book has been thought as a course manual, but it reads like a divulgative work on modern international and multinational banking. The numerous examples come from some of the big issues faced by different banks in different countries, and the open-minded approach of the author gives you the chance to easily grasp the big picture.
