Financial market shocks often spread rapidly across different asset classes and between countries. This unit examines the structural reasons for these interrelationships, including financial intermediation, risk management products and regulatory structure. Attention is paid to the challenge of accurate measurement and effective management of the inherent financial risks in the activities of financial institutions. In particular, topics covered include:
• Principles of financial management for depository financial institutions;
• Various types of financial risks confronted by financial institutions;
• Concepts, models, techniques and approaches to mitigate these risks theoretically and practically;
• International bank management and international financial services with regulatory frameworks.
