The Principles of Banking, written by an experien-ced banker and seasoned finance academic, Professor Moorad Choudhry, should appeal to everyone involved in the banking industry as well as to students of finance. The Principles of Banking covers issues of practical importance to bank practitioners, including asset-liability ma-nagement, liquidity risk and management, capital management and stress testing as well as issues of bank strategy and corporate governance. It is replete with worked examples illustrating the key principles of asset-liability management. Viewed against the background of the global financial crisis, this book is a useful reminder of how basic principles of banking had taken a back seat or been simply ignored.
