The past decade has seen dramatic losses in the banking industry. Banks that had been performing well suddenly announced large losses due to financing / credit exposures that turned sour. In response to this, banks have almost universally embarked on an upgrading of their risk management and control systems whilst having to meet more stringent capital requirements.
It is thus essential for banking executives and managers to equip themselves with the necessary analytical skills to proactively ask the right questions and to learn from the various experiences of banks to-date.
