The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management

By Stanley Myint and Fabrice Famery


The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management, written by Stanley Myint and Fabrice Famery, guides you intuitively through all possible risk-related problems you will encounter on a regular basis, leading from one component of corporate risk management to the next until you have all the solutions you require. Each section of the book contains a collection of real-life case studies which BNP Paribas have worked on, beginning with the problems these cases exhibited and concluding with the solutions BNP Paribas found best resolved these.

Book description

The financial crisis destroyed long-cherished notions of risk and how to manage it. In its wake, CFOs and Treasurers face a world where constants are no longer sure to hold, markets can no longer be certain to price and no position is risk free.

As a result, corporations around the world increasingly recognise the value in paying even more attention to managing financial risks. Deciding to hedge may seem a logical way to do this.

But how exactly do you hedge financial risks? How should your debt be structured? How do you determine which risks to hedge first, and which ones (if any) should be left unhedged?

With the scrutiny of risk management and market uncertainty at all-time highs, The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management, written by Stanley Myint and Fabrice Famery of BNP Paribas, addresses these very real problems, providing a detailed guide to the financial risks faced by corporates, and how to manage them.

The book contains a unique set of case studies drawing on real-life industry experience and is organised around the challenges treasurers and treasuries face every day: 

•    Funding
•    Interest rate and inflation risks
•    Currency risk
•    Credit risk
•    M&A related risks
•    Commodity risk

This book is an essential resource for all risk management professionals and practitioners - treasurers, CFOs, CROs, CEOs, FDs, traders; accountants, consultants; corporate bankers, coverage officers, corporate financiers, private equity investors; academics and students in the field of corporate risk management.

Customer Reviews

Average customer reviews for The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management

Master Class Risk

The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management is used to support the Masters Class Risk at the Rotterdam Business School.

The book was selected to make master students aware of Corporate Financial Risk. The book is build up in a structured and consistent way, to make the drivers of the financial risk obvious, which are explained by using practical examples, finalized by a conclusion and recommendation relative to the financial risk subjects. The future decision makers will understand the financial risk elements after reading and discussing and will use the knowledge to make strategic decisions for their companies. The content of the book is very useful for Finance and Business Administrative Master Students.
Review by Ronald van Megen , 06/02/2014

Excellent contribution to the literature

The authors have provided an excellent treatise on financial risk management for non-financial corporations. The book is a unique contribution to the risk management literature which has tended to focus largely on the risk management of financial institutions. The real case studies bring life to the risks treated in the book which include interest rate risk, currency risk, credit risk and commodity price risk. I highly recommend the book.
Review by Scott Linn , 06/02/2014

Really handy/practical book

I found this book particularly helpful on a day-to-day basis. The author has obviously real life experience with Treasurers/CFO which makes the book really practical. He is developing a rational and methodical approach towards financial risk and this is of a great help in my job
