Risk and Governance: A Framework for Banking Organisations (2nd edition) includes five new chapters, with all other chapters updated. The book aims to both provide a reference for governance theories and practices on banks’ governance and articulate a detailed proposal for a new governance framework.
Directors can use the book as a guide to how to structure their work in order to better fulfil their responsibilities. Risk managers can find ideas on how to improve the effectiveness of the risk management function and on aspects of risk management that, although not usually in the limelight, are nonetheless critical to a company’s resilience. Supervisors and policy makers can gain insights on current practices or even use it as a blueprint for reforms. Auditors and consultants can use it as a reference on a number of risk and governance topics that are fundamental for responding to their clients’ needs.
Since the financial crisis the corporate governance of banks has been identified as one of the critical elements in a more stable financial system. However, due to the peculiar nature of financial firms as well as to the fundamental role of the financial industry in modern economies, the issue has remained complex, and very little of the proposed changes to the current paradigm has been translated into practice.
This new edition of Risk and Governance: A Framework for Banking Organisations details how to structure a new corporate governance framework for financial institutions that responds to the threats highlighted by the financial crisis: excessive risk taking; conflicts of interest; biased incentives and compensation; and ineffective supervision.
