Bank Risk Management in Developing Economies: Addressing the Unique Challenges of Domestic Banks provides an up-to-date resource on how domestically-based banks in emerging economies can provide financial services for all economic sectors while also contributing to national economic development policies.
Because these types of bank are often exposed to risky sectors, they are usually set apart from foreign subsidiaries, and thus need risk models that foreign-based banks do not address. This book is the first to identify these needs, proposing solutions through the use of case studies and analyses that illustrate how developing economic banking crises are often rooted in managing composite risks. The book represents a departure from classical literature that focuses on assets, liabilities, and balance sheet management, by which developing economy banks, like their counterparts elsewhere, have not fared well.

"All readers will treasure this book because it offers a comprehensive, yet focused overview of risk management concepts and key challenges facing modern banks operating in the developing world. A very useful resource for practitioners, academics, and students alike." -- Claudia Girardone, University of Essex
"The book meets the most recent trends in the business practices and in the literature by offering the holistic approach to risk management. It gives the reader an exceptional opportunity to learn about the novel risks that managers in emerging markets have to face in the revolution of banking." -- Lukasz Kozlowski, Kozminski University
"Banks in emerging markets have to operate in a different cultural, regulatory and legal environment than that of the developed economies. Risk management techniques from the developed economies do not readily translate over. This book bridges that gap and is a must for all scholars and bankers in emerging markets." -- Kent Matthews, Cardiff University
