Saunders and Cornett?s Financial Institutions Management: A Risk Management Approach 7/e provides an innovative approach that focuses on managing return and risk in modern financial institutions. The central theme is that the risks faced by financial institutions managers and the methods and markets through which these risks are managed are becoming increasingly similar whether an institution is chartered as a commercial bank, a savings bank, an investment bank, or an insurance company. Although the traditional nature of each sector?s product activity is analyzed, a greater emphasis is placed on new areas of activities such as asset securitization, off-balance-sheet banking, and international banking.
Key Features

# New discussion of the financial crisis: Discussion of the financial crisis has been added throughout the book. Every chapter now includes new material detailing how the financial crisis affected risk management in financial institutions. Some of the larger changes are detailed below:
# Appendix 1A now describes events leading up to the financial crisis, events occurring at the peak of the crisis, and events associated with the aftermath of the financial crisis, including changes to financial institutions, the impact on U.S. and world economies, federal financial and fiscal rescue efforts, and proposed regulatory changes.
# Chapter 17 includes a discussion of the liquidity crisis experienced by financial institutions during the crisis.
# Chapter 19 includes a discussion of the new deposit insurance coverage and premium rules as well as the FDIC?s attempts to deal with the liquidity crisis.
# Chapter 20 includes a discussion of the TARP Capital Purchase Program and stress tests on the major commercial banks in 2009.
# Chapter 22 through 26 includes discussion of the role of derivative securities in the financial crisis, including the roles of swaps (especially credit default swaps), collateralized mortgage, and collateralized debt obligations.
# Chapter 26 includes a new section on special purpose entities (SPEs) and structured investment vehicles (SIVs), as well as the federal government takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
# New discussions on major firms: Early chapters include discussion of major firms that have been lost or dramatically altered as a result of the financial crisis. This includes the failure of Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and AIG, conversions of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, GMAC, and CIT Group to bank holding companies, the failure of Primary Reserve Money Market Funds, and the failure of CIT Group.
# New appendix: Appendix 2A has been added that describes the process of financial ratio analysis for financial institutions.
# Proposed regulation changes: Major changes proposed for the regulation of financial institutions are included where appropriate throughout the book.
# New discussion of major scandals: Chapter 5 includes a discussion of major scandals in some hedge funds, including Bernie Madoff Investment Securities and Galleon Group LLC.
# Integrated mini cases: Integrated mini cases have been added to Chapters 9, 10, 12, 22.
# New real world boxes: New boxes highlighting ?Notable Events from the Financial Crisis? have been added to chapters throughout the book.
# New Organization: Chapters 21 and 22 in the previous editions of the text have been combined so that product and geographic expansion are viewed as part of an overall expansion strategy for financial institutions rather than as independent activities.
# A risk approach: Financial Institutions Management uses a risk approach, keeping the first section of the text as an introduction and the last two sections as a risk measurement and risk management summary, respectively.
# Continuing detailed coverage of what?s new: A detailed look at what is new in each of the different sectors of the financial institutions industry is presented in the first six chapters of the text. The continued international coverage is highlighted with a global issues section icon located throughout the text.
# Electronic technology and the Internet: Coverage of electronic technology and the Internet?s impact on financial services is included in Chapter 16. Technological changes occurring over the last decade have changed the way financial institutions offer services to customers, both domestically and overseas. The effect of technology is also referenced in other chapters where relevant.
# Credit risk models: Coverage of credit risk models (including newer models, such as KMV, CreditMetrics, and CreditRisk+) are included in the text.
# The paths of banking: Coverage in the ?Product and Geographic Expansion? chapter continues to explore the increased inroads of banks into the insurance field, the move towards nationwide banking (in the United States), and the rapid growth of foreign banks and other intermediaries in the United States.
# Ethical controversies: In-chapter discussions of the many ethical controversies involving financial institutions (such as those involving commercial banks, investment banks, and mutual funds) exist in most chapters.
# Web questions: Web questions included in the end-of-chapter problems guide the student through Web sites as they collect the requested data. Further, these problems ask the student to evaluate the data collected.
# Chapter Notation online: Chapter Notation has been summarized and posted to the book?s web site (located at www.mhhe.com/saunders7e) by chapter.
# Concept questions: Concept questions, placed throughout each chapter, test students to ensure they have learned what they have read.
