Interest Rate Risk Management Financial risk management is currently subject to much debate, especially the accounting for derivative products, and a number of commentators are objecting to the introduction of International Accounting Standard IAS 39 for Derivatives that will be in force by January 2005 for all EU companies. The topic of hedge accounting and the treatment of fair values may have a significant impact on many companies reported profits, and the volatility of earnings is likely to increase. Uniquely this monograph focuses on interest rate risk management. Most studies of corporate risk management have typically dwelt on the topic of management of exchange rate risk, with interest rate risk management being neglected. The book's findings examine the views of UK corporate treasurers who are usually involved in the risk management strategies of their organisation and who have responsibility for implementing those strategies in practice.

The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund: A Changing Relationship (Brookings Occasional Papers) In this text, Jacques J. Polak discusses in detail the origin of the conflicts between the institutions arising from their overlapping activities that culminated at the end of the 1980s and the measures taken since to diffuse these conflicts. In their first three decades, the two institutions engaged in clearly distinct activities; the Bank made long-term loans to finance infrastructural projects in developing countries while the Fund gave economic advice and short term stabilization loans to both industrial and developing countries. But since the mid-1970s, the seperate lives of the two "Bretton Woods Sisters" have become increasingly entangled and the demarcation lines between them have often become blurred.
