Balanced, practical risk management for post – financial crisis institutions Fundamentals of Risk Management fills a critical gap left by existing risk management texts. Instead of focusing only on quantitative risk analysis or only on institutional risk management, this book takes a comprehensive approach. The disasters of the recent financial crisis taught us that managing risk is both an art and a science, and it is critical for practitioners to understand how individual risks are integrated at the enterprise level. This book is the only resource of its kind to introduce all of the key risk management concepts in a cohesive case study spanning each chapter. A hypothetical bank drawn from elements of several real world institutions serves as a backdrop for topics from credit risk and operational risk to understanding big-picture risk exposure. You will be able to see exactly how each rigorous concept is applied in actual risk management contexts. Fundamentals of Risk Management includes: Supplemental Excel-based Visual Basic (VBA) modules, so you can interact directly with risk models Clear explanations of the importance of risk management in preventing financial disasters Real world examples and lessons learned from past crises Risk policies, infrastructure, and activities that balance limited quantitative models This book provides the element of hands-on application necessary to put enterprise risk management into effective practice. The very best risk managers rely on a balanced approach that leverages every aspect of financial operations for an integrative risk management strategy. With Fundamentals of Risk Management, you can identify and control risk at an expert level.

-- Helps students build the kind of academic and extracurricular record they need, starting in eighth grade -- and still have a life. -- Age appropriate text that's sensitive to the emotional, psychological, and intellectual needs of teens. -- Filled with checklists, quizzes, worksheets, time management tips and solid information for teens and their parents. Starting the countdown to college in middle school -- too soon or not early enough? The grades earned in some 8th grade classes -- foreign language, for instance -- appear on the final high school transcripts students submit to colleges. And whether school systems admit it or not, "tracking" begins in 7th grade -- and a student's "track" determines whether he or she will be able to take the advanced courses in high school that college admissions officers look for. KickStart to College helps students build the kind of academic and extracurricular record they'll need, and still have a life. Good planning over the course of late middle school and high school ensures that the college admissions process doesn't consume the lives of teens or their parents -- the student is in control! The book helps students use athletics, music, drama, art, clubs, volunteering, and summer activities to experiment and grow, as well as to build a college application that will be a true indication of their special abilities -- keeping in mind that it's impossible to build a complete resume in the 18 months prior to high school graduation. It's reassuring and helpful to parents as well as students; college prep and the likelihood of being accepted to the college of one's choice has changed a lot since most parents went to college themselves -- andperfect preparation for households in which high-schoolers will be first-generation college students.
