The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management, due for publication at the end of October, is "highly recommended - if not a must, read for students and business professionals alike." Eric Hageman, Chief Financial Officer, KPN Royal Dutch Telecom.

"This unique book provides a comprehensive overview of corporate risk management topics and will prove to be very useful to Treasurers and Financial Directors in their daily activities" Alessandro Canta, Head of Group Finance, ENEL.

With the current global economic and financial environment creating immense pressures for Corporate Risk Management departments, The Handbook of Corporate Financial Risk Management reveals inside secrets on how to identify and analyse potential sources of risk, and take the necessary steps to prevent losses.

The Handbook is entirely based on real-life case studies, which makes it intuitive and approachable for the reader.

The authors provide step-by-step solutions that have worked for some of the largest European companies, allowing readers to adapt these solutions to their own circumstances and create a tailored and robust risk management framework.

The book is divided into six parts: Funding, Interest Rate and Inflation, Currency, Credit, M&A-Related and Commodity Risks.

An essential resource for:

  • Corporate Treasurers, CFOs, CROs, CEOs, Financial Directors, traders and anyone who deals with the management of financial risks in non-financial companies
  • Accountants, management and pension consultants and other advisors on the subject of risk
  • Corporate bankers, coverage officers, corporate financiers, private equity investors, capital markets and derivatives marketers covering non-financial companies
  • Academics and students

"This topical book could not have come at a better moment. It illustrates the power of a systematic, quantitative and analytical approach to Financial Risk, which is even more important in these turbulent times."

Thomas Bartelt, Head of Financial Risk Controlling, Volkswagen

"…I can see this becoming required reading for anyone involved in managing corporate finance risk, and a key reference in the field."
