Managing Financial Institutions: Markets and Sustainable Finance
This book goes beyond traditional financial institutions textbooks, which tend to focus on mathematical models for risk management and the technical aspects of measuring and managing risk. It focuses on the role of financial institutions in promoting social and economic goals for the communities in which they operate for the greater good, while also meeting financial and competitive challenges and managing risks. Cooperman divides the text into seven easily teachable modules that examine the real issues and challenges that managers of financial institutions face. This includes the transformative changes presented by social unrest, climate change and resource challenges, as well as the changes in how financial institutions operate in light of the opportunities that rapid innovations and disruptive technologies offer. The book features: Up-to-date coverage of new regulations affecting financial institutions, such as Dodd Frank and new SEC regulations Material on project financing and new forms of financing, including crowdfunding and new methods of payment for financial institutions New sustainable finance models and strategies that incorporate environmental, social, and corporate governance considerations A new chapter on sustainable financial institutions, social activism, the greening of finance and socially responsible investing A new chapter on managing and measuring social and environmental risks Practical cases focusing on sustainability give readers insight into the socioeconomic risks associated with climate change. Streamlined and accessible, Managing Financial Institutions will appeal to students of financial institutions and markets, risk management, and banking. A companion website featuring PowerPoint slides, an Instructor’s Manual, and additional cases is also available.
