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
