Summary: good overal beginner reference to risk management in banking Rating: 4 The book is very well structured and I think and excellent introduction to the risk management in banking.
I bought this book as hope to give me some more detailed presepective of risk management, but after reading it I think it should be used as a side reading reference to finance courses that some of the universities offer today in risk management or financial engineering.
The author covers almost everything that we should know in risk management if we are new to it. However, if you are more experienced with finance or risk management I think this could be potential waste of money. I also think that the book has a bit high price for what it offers.
Yes, there are some examples but not to an extent as there should be especially in the field as risk management and finance, where more and more people read these kinds of books in order to see or find how they can apply the information in the book to some real time activities in the financial market or corporate institution.
If you are looking for some more concrete text with some serious derivation of mathematical formulas for finance and risk management, or some more detailed presentations more complex to read I think you should then consider buying some other book. Summary: Structured well Rating: 5 The concepts are structured quite well and could serve as foundation for further studies in this area.
The book gets 5 stars for its content. The negative is that the book is overpriced, particularly when the publisher released a paperback version priced at less than half the price of the hardback version shortly after the hardback was published — hence the lower rating. Free Download Links.
