Kurzbeschreibung

Managing risk is at the core of managing any financial organization. Risk measurement and quantitative tools are critical aids for supporting risk management, but quantitative tools alone are no substitute for judgment, wisdom, and knowledge. Managers within a financial organization must be, before anything else, risk managers in the true sense of managing the risks that the firm faces.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Eine ganz gute Lektüre zum Thema Risiko Management, mit einem Schwerpunkt auf Banken. Das übersichtliche Büchlein ersetzt mit seinen 200 Seiten zwar kein akademisches Standardwerk, eignet sich aber sehr gut als Einstieg in das Thema. Der Name hält was er verspricht. Der Text liest sich gut, ist einfach zu verstehen und mit vielen praktischen und mehr oder weniger aktuellen Beispielen versehen. Thomas Coleman kommt aus der Bankenwelt, entsprechend ist das Thema in vielen Fällen auf Banken zugeschnitten und die Beispiele sind auch großteils aus der Finanzwelt.
Das Buch kann man übrigens auch kostenlos unter cfapubs.org downloaden! Wer lieber die Printausgabe in Händen hält, für den ist diese im Vergleich zu ähnlicher Literatur günstige print-on-demand Ausgabe eine lohnende Investition. Ansonsten einfach mal in die kostenlose pdf-Version reinschnuppern um einen ersten Eindruck zu bekommen. Danke dem CFA Institute für die Förderung und Finanzierung dieses Fachbuches!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful and Practical 23. Juli 2012
Von Josh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"A Practical Guide to Risk Management" delivers exactly what the title promises. The book provides the reader with a practical way to manage risk. The author offers a holistic approach to risk management that requires managing the people, processes and institutions involved as well as measuring and quantifying risk. The author gives his definition of risk and provides examples of why humans are deficient at quantifying risk. The author introduces volatility and Value at Risk (VaR) as relatively simple tools that can be used to measure risk. A balanced analysis reviews the strengths and weaknesses of volatility and VaR; ultimately concluding that volatility and VaR may compliment a human's innate strengths. The book does an excellent job providing insight into how investment managers can better manage and measure risk using a straightforward and practical approach.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Risk management is everyone's job 17. August 2011
Von Philip Lawton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Thomas S. Coleman's book, A Practical Guide to Risk Management, is a thoughtful, engaging work that board members and senior managers, in particular, will find most instructive. Coleman argues that, while risk measurement is a specialized technical discipline that should often be housed in a separate department, risk management is the responsibility of the board, the CEO, and every line manager in the firm. One chapter presents fundamental concepts of risk management, including a lucid explanation of frequency-based and belief-based probability. Another, devoted to managing risk, incorporates a superb essay comparing a firm's financial exposures to small-group ski mountaineering in avalanche country. The author also surveys historic trading losses and comments on specific cases of fraud and "normal business activity gone wrong." In addition, there is a full-length primer on measuring risk and a brief consideration of the uses and limitations of quantitative techniques. Valuable for motivated generalists and experienced risk professionals alike, Coleman's work fully meets the standards of excellence in writing and editing we have come to expect from the Research Foundation of CFA Institute.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well-Balanced and Readable Review of Risk Management 12. Januar 2012
Von Bud Haslett, CFA - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Coleman's book does an excellent job of highlighting the importance of the qualitative aspects of risk management. This is in contrast to most other books that focus solely on quantitative issues. Here is my favorite quote from the book:

"The ultimate goal for risk management is to build a robust yet flexible organization and set of processes. We need to recognize that quantitative risk measurement tools often fail to capture just those unanticipated events that pose the most risk to the organization. The art of risk management is in building a culture and organization that can respond to and withstand these unanticipated events."

Robert Litterman, in his Foreward to the book, notes an important point that is often overlooked:

"Coleman emphasizes throughout that the management of risk is not a function designed to minimize risk. Although risk usually refers to the downside of random outcomes, as Coleman puts it, risk management is about taking advantage of opportunities: controlling the downside and exploiting the upside."

This highly readable book is an excellent introduction to risk management, and those who want more can read the expansion to this book that will be published shortly by Wiley. There will also be web tools to calculate risk measures and such.

Make sure you check it out...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting book, mainly focused in Financial Risks 30. Dezember 2014
Von lorenzopreve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is focused on risk management for a financial firm, and is mainly devoted to the analysis of financial risk. Some interesting ideas arise: (i) Risk management is too important a responsibility for managers to delegate it. (ii) Risk management is about taking advantage of opportunities: “controlling the downside and exploiting the upside” (distinguishing between downside risk and upside opportunity). (iii) The only outcome that matters is future cash flow and profits of the firm.

Here I summarize some of the main ideas from each Chapter:

In Chapter 1 the author presents some concepts about risk measurement and management.
Chapter 2 has a very interesting discussion on probability and intuition, including a nice set of examples on how intuition might fool you in measuring probabilities. It discusses Frequency type and Bayesian type probabilities.
In Chapter 3 Coleman shows the importance of soft managerial skills in risk management discussing the importance of managing people, processes, data, etc. In my opinion this discussion is too light and brief given its importance in the final outcome. In the section Organizational Structure, there is an interesting discussion regarding the structure of the risk management department and the role of the CRO
In Chapter 4 the author lists and discusses several financial disasters. They are separated into Idiosyncratic and Systemic problems. There is not much more than that, but the data in interesting. The list of lessons learned in Page 119 is worth reading.
Chapter 5 presents quantitative risk measurement techniques, with a strong emphasis on VaR (including a brief discussion on the models to estimate it) and volatility. The discussion continues with a discussion of how to treat tail events and tools for analyzing risk. The section concludes with a discussion on risk reporting, before moving to the analysis of credit risk.
In Chapter 6 the author provides a very (too) brief discussion of the limitations of the models presented in the previous chapter. They basically are: (i) Models not include all risk positions, (ii) risk measures in general are backward looking, (iii) VaR does not measure “worst case scenario”, (iv) quantitative techniques are complex, (v) quantitative risk measures does not properly represent risk events
Chapter 7 presents some brief conclusions

Overall, I think this is a good book, worth reading, especially if you are interested in Financial Risk Management for financial institutions.
