With the entire financial sector across the globe working on the implementation of the 2004 Basel II Accord in some form and intensity there is much work to be done at bank level. Credit Risk Management gives you the means to put in place the credit risk measurement and management framework, policies, procedures and practices that are needed.
As a unique implementation guide covering the entire spectrum of credit risk management, this book will assist you with your credit risk policy and help you to facilitate the establishment of risk processes and procedures and implementation of information technology.
Having assessed the vast amount of existing literature on this subject Bhatia found the bulk of it to be deficient in many areas, this book fills in the gaps for you by:
• Approaching explanations from a non- mathematical perspective, with the spirit behind the mathematics and equations explained in an accessible manner,
• Taking a holistic approach, with an end-to-end analysis of the credit risk problem; and
• Absorbing and integrating best practices echoed by the Basel Accord.
An excellent framework for analysis and implementation is provided and this information will be beneficial for a wide range of people from risk managers and compliance officers to credit risk administration personnel, front and middle office personnel, and students of GARP or financial engineering.
