1 Review
In an era of globalisation, syndicated lending and consolidation within the banking industry, virtually all industries will have international dealings, whether directly or indirectly, and will therefore be exposed to consequential risks. An understanding of international risk, from that of bank of country failure to the idiosyncrasies of different regulatory frameworks, is essential for the modern banker. This book gives the reader a thorough understanding of how to calculate, analyse and manage such risks.

Very Informative, dry and boring, but read about SWIFT as the new BRICS systems is a direct competition to it. Which happens to be the US Dollar Dominated Petrol-Dollar tie in.
