The failure of Wall Street : how and why Wall Street fails--and what can be done about it by Erik Banks( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 419 libraries worldwide
"The Failure of Wall Street analyzes how and why Wall Street fails, and what can be done to rectify the failures. After a short discussion of Wall Street's role in raising capital, granting corporate and personal advice, managing risk, and acting as a trusted fiduciary financial analyst, Erik Banks explores the dramatic failures that have occurred in each of theses areas, using case studies and examples to illustrate the nature and extent of the problems. Next, he demonstrates why Wall Street fails in each area of supposed "expertise," focusing on shortcomings in governance, management, skills/controls, and transparency. Finally, Banks proposes a framework for addressing the shortfalls that continue to plague Wall Street. He argues that these solutions, while not necessarily quick, easy, or cheap to implement, can help make Wall Street become the sound, consistent, and efficient financial expert it is meant to be."--Jacket

Risk culture : a practical guide to building and strengthening the fabric of risk management by Erik Banks( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 119 libraries worldwide
Risk, or the uncertainty regarding a future event or outcome, characterizes much of what banks, industrial corporations, and governmental agencies must deal with on a daily basis. Failure to recognize, quantify and manage risk can lead to significant problems. The very fact that risk exists and has the potential to create negative results means that it has to be actively managed. And, while the quantitative models and governance frameworks used to manage risks are by now well established, the behavioral aspects, centered on the concept of risk culture, are often unclear and under-theorized. Risk culture, which can be defined as an internal sensibility that reflects knowledge of, and respect for risk, represents a new frontier in the evolving field of risk management. Risk Culture is a practical volume devoted to the qualitative aspects of risk management, including those that should be firmly embedded in the corporate culture. Through descriptions, examples and case studies, the book analyzes weak and strong cultures and proposes a series of structural and behavioral actions that can lead to the strengthening of a company's culture. In a 21st century business world characterized by volatility and uncertainty, a strong risk culture is a prerequisite to success; Risk Culture is designed to help financial, corporate and governmental institutions address this increasingly critical topic
