Financial Institutions Management+Standard & Poor's+Ethics in Finance Powerweb (Irwin Mcgraw Hill Series in Finance, Insurance and Real Estate) Book DescriptionSaunders and Cornett’s Financial Institutions Management: A Risk Management Approach 5/e 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.
The Life Insurance Enterprise, 1855-1910: A Study in the Limits of Corporate Power This book examines the critical period in the development f the modern life insurance business. The discussion of ideology, managerial and business techniques, the foreign market, investment policies, and government regulation centers on the Big Five. The New York Life, Equitable Life, Mutual Life, and Metropolitan Life insurance companies in New York and the Prudential Insurance Company in Newark at the end of the nineteenth century possessed enormous power.

Finally, he sketches the beginning of the end of...
The Celys and Their World: An English Merchant Family of the Fifteenth Century From the start of his career as a young woolmerchant, about 1473, George Cely was a hoarder. He kept everything, from important business accounts down to the scrap of paper on which his father had once noted that the brewer and tailor hadn't been paid yet. The result is a rich collection, which not merely documents the Cely family's activities as staplers and ship-owners, but also gives vivid details of their intimate concerns: what they ate and wore, where they lived, how they spent their money - and where they went for loans when the cash ran short - how they amused themselves, and how they coped with trade recessions and political turmoil at home and abroad. This is the first comprehensive study to be based on the material.
