The Simple Rules of Risk : Revisiting the Art of Financial Risk Management

Автор:

In an age where companies and financial institutions are keenly focusing on managing the financial risk of their operations, the implementation of quantitative methods and models has been of tremendous help, allowing firms to analyze and manage their risk more efficiently and effectively. However, the focus on quantitative risk management, while important, can sometimes be over-emphasized at the expense of judgement, logic and experience. Market dislocations of the 1990’s have revealed the shortcomings of purely quantitative approaches to risk management – and the need for a strong grounding in the «common sense» aspects of the discipline. At is core, the successful management of risk is largely an «art». In The Simple Rules of Risk, the author, based on over fifteen year’s experience in senior risk management positions around the world, takes a fresh look at the qualitative aspects of risk management. Providing detailed presentation and discussion of the simple rules that should form the core of any effective risk management process, including the 10 «cardinal rules», Erik Banks shows how these, in conjunction with new or existing quantitative procedures, can form the basis of an effective and robust risk management framework.

Determinants Of Debt Maturity In Indian Corporate Sector

Determinants Of Debt Maturity In Indian Corporate Sector

Автор:

This research is an ambitious attempt to study the determinants of debt maturity in the Indian corporate sector using panel OLS regression methodology. The corporate debt portfolio analysis discloses that the dominance of traditional debt instruments, predominance of banks, declining trend in the issue of debentures, conservative financing strategies, and absence of innovative and diverse debt instruments for investment, speculation, and risk diversification are the major imperfections prevail in the corporate debt market. The corporate debt market imperfections and the dysfunctional corporate bond market have hampered the growth and development of business and industry. The Indian corporate sector has been characterized by a moderate level of long term debt maturity. This research finds that growth options, firm size, firm quality, asset maturity, corporate tax rate, term structure, and asset variance jointly determine the debt maturity. These research findings lead to the conclusion that agency cost hypothesis, signaling hypothesis, liquidity risk hypothesis, matching hypothesis, and tax hypothesis determine debt maturity in the Indian corporate sector.
