About this title


Business Insurance Magazine Innovation Award 2012

American Library Association Outstanding Business Reference Source 2012

Managing financial risk boils down to understanding how to reduce a complex business environment into workable concepts and models. The AMA Handbook of Financial Risk Management provides readers with the tools they need for dealing with the most important areas of financial decision making. Filled with strategies, principles, and measurement techniques, the book shows readers how to:

- Categorize financial risks

- Reduce risks from cash flow and budget exposures

- Analyze operating risks

- Understand the interrelationship of risk and return

- Manage risks in capital investment decisions

- Determine the value of common stock

- Optimize debt in the capital structure

Providing both explanations and practical applications, the book clarifies the key decision areas in financial risk management. This indispensable guide enables anyone involved in the financial management of an organization to know what factors are at stake and how to protect the bottom line.

From the Inside Flap:

Every financial investment decision your organization makes involves the concept of risk. How much profit needs to be returned on an investment to justify the amount of exposure that comes with it? Do you have a proven market and a competitive product? How large is the risk compared to your current resources? Can you afford the loss you might take? And have you considered the changes that might occur—from the cost of doing business to the state of the marketplace, the economy, and even the environment—that might take place and affect the outcome?

But managing risk isn’t just about the exposures your company may be open to—it’s also about opportunity. Yes, you can lose money with every financial decision. But with the proper risk management systems in place, you can also pursue success at higher degrees than you’ve ever imagined.

The AMA Handbook of Financial Risk Management provides the tools for dealing with the most important areas of financial decision making, equipping you with models that allow you to determine each new step in your organization’s future. The book provides clear explanations, straightforward guidance, and indispensable tools for evaluating risks that simply should not be ignored, including:

· Investment Risk, in which you may fail to earn a return or lose the invested capital

· Liquidity Risk, opened up by the fluctuating value of your securities or other assets

· Cash Flow Risk, that develops from opera­tions when you fail to manage seasonal or other variations

· Capital Structure Risk, when you borrow too much or fail to borrow to seize opportunities

· Budgeting Risk, when you fail to support goals and strategic initiatives with the resources to be successful

· Information Technology Risk, wherein failing to keep up with new developments can leave you open to competitors taking over your markets

· Valuation Risk, buying or selling assets without realizing their real worth

· And many more

Examining both the upside and the possible downside to every conceivable factor of your business, The AMA Handbook of Financial Risk Management is an indispensable resource that provides you with the philosophical and analytical framework you need to make the right decisions for your organization, every time.
