Mastering Risk Volume 1: Concepts

Edited by James Pickford, this book is a collection of chapters by different authors that first appeared
as a series in the Financial Times. The chapters vary in quality, but most are useful to some degree. Some chapters in the book tend to assume a banking background. There are five chapters on operational risk, somewhat less banking oriented than many of the other chapters. It has a useful overview chapter on credit risk, Lenders and borrowers demand a creditable system by Suresh M. Sundaresan. There is a useful chapter on enterprise risk management, Total strategies for company-wide risk control by Lisa Meulbroek. Visit the page for this book on Amazon.
