summary

The focus of this book is to investigate the economic capital modelling and risk management of financial institutions during and after the global crisis. This publication primarily concentrates on the significant role of liquidity and operational risks that serve as the pivot point on which the past financial crisis turned. In terms of economic capital and risk modelling, standard methodologies such as value-at-risk or stress testing, as well as relatively new methods including copula functions and coherent risk measures, are applied. All four chapters collectively serve the common purpose of helping to provide presentation of both theoretical and practical aspects of economic capital and related risk management practices. The book is targeted to practitioners, academics, bankers and economists interested in a deeper understanding of this field of research.
