Economic problems in many countries and the aggressive growth targets of banks resulted in financial crises. As a result, reductions in profit margins will be witnessed in the banking industry. It is expected that the only way that banks can protect their profit margins against the harms of banking risks is to develop an efficient risk management process and culture. Within risk-return framework, students will be provided information on the relationship between risk, profitability and capital adequacy. Duration analysis, gap analysis and hedging strategies will be provided to students. For SU Finance majors counts as a finance elective (students may only use one non-Whitman course as part of their finance electives). (IF 3215)
