The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk (2nd edition)

By Stanley Myint and Fabrice Famery


How are the largest European non-financial companies managing their financial risks? How do you hedge financial risks? How do you determine which risks to hedge first, and which ones (if any) should be left unhedged? The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management addresses these problems, providing a detailed guide to financial risks facing corporates. 

This unique book, purely devoted to corporate risk management is now in its second edition and greatly expanded. It contains 43 real-life case studies, 20 of which are new to the second edition.

Stanley Myint and Fabrice Famery (BNP Paribas) have based this book on 700+ client projects spanning over 14 years. The case studies draw on real-life industry experience and the challenges treasurers and treasuries face every day: 

  • Theory and practice of risk management and capital structure

  • Funding and capital structure

  • Interest rate and inflation risks

  • Currency risk

  • Credit risk

  • M&A related risks

  • Commodity risk

  • Equity risk

  • This book is an essential resource for all risk-management professionals and practitioners: Treasurers, CFOs, CROs, CEOs, financial directors, traders, accountants, consultants, corporate bankers, coverage officers, corporate financiers, private equity investors, academics and students in the field of corporate risk management. The first edition has been used in the Financial Crises and Risk Management course at Said Business School, University of Oxford since 2014.
