Skin in the Game
Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Publisher: Verlagsgruppe Random House GmbH
Category: Social Science
Warum wir nur denen vertrauen sollten, die etwas zu verlieren haben Stehen wir für die Risiken ein, die wir verursachen? Zu viele der Menschen, die auf der Welt Macht und Einfluss haben, so Nassim Nicholas Taleb, müssen nicht wirklich den Kopf hinhalten für das, was sie tun und veranlassen. Intellektuelle, Journalisten, Bürokraten, Banker, ihnen vor allem wirft er vor, kein »Skin in the Game« zu haben. Weil sie den Preis nicht bezahlen müssen, wenn sie irren, fällen sie schlechte Entscheidungen. Taleb zeigt anhand vieler Beispiele, wie »Skin in the Game«, ein fundamentales Konzept des Risikomanagements, auf alle Bereiche unseres Lebens übertragen werden kann. Sein neues Buch, so provozierend und bahnbrechend wie »Der Schwarze Schwan«, fordert uns heraus, alles, was wir über Risiko und Verantwortung in Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu wissen glauben, neu zu denken.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, course: Kooperationsstudiengang mit der FOM Hochschule für Ökonomie & Management, language: English, abstract: The goal of this dissertation is to give the reader a fundamental understanding of the various risks for games publishers’ online business by identifying and examining generally affecting e-commerce risks as well as risks specific to the games industry environment. Furthermore, the author will list possible solutions to reduce negative impacts caused by these risks. In the last decade, e-commerce transactions like the one described above became a routine. Especially in more sophisticated countries with broadband Internet access, consumers at all age levels utilize ist capabilities to purchase products online. The majority of these transactions are business-to-consumer. During the last five to ten years, publishers of entertainment software have also targeted the Internet as a new distribution channel. Approaching gamers directly through websites or platform marketplaces is a faster and more profitable way of generating revenue than traditional retailing. Transaction costs are decreased, marketing time is reduced, and direct communication with communities, which is typical for this line of business, is improved. Certainly there are not only advantages associated with online distribution of video games, and we will later discuss whether cost savings really occur. Several aspects of risk need to be considered before making a decision. It is a question about the strategic orientation of any company operating in the given industry.

Banking today is not what it was some years back. The basic purpose for which banks came into being was deposit mobilization and credit dispensation, which in a short form can be called 3-6-3 banking. It is not the same any more as the major agenda of the banks today is to multiply profits through an array of services like insurance, mutual fund, wealth management etc. to customers. The growth of financial markets, blurring of product boundaries, new network technologies have brought in enormous opportunities in the banking sector. The key to success is knowledge on the subject and updation of the events in the sector. Living up to the aspirations and requirements of the industry, many Indian Universities have introduced Banking as a subject in the curriculum of management courses at the undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. Business Schools and institutes of academic excellence have evolved exclusive courses on Banking to tap the potential in the field. This book meets the requirements of the subject in all its angles and intends to serve the requirements of management students who would like to make a career in banking and for those in pursuit of promotional avenues within the bank.

Category: Business & Economics
This book is a guide to asset and risk management from a practical point of view. It is centered around two questions triggered by the global events on the stock markets since the middle of the last decade: - Why do crashes happen when in theory they should not? - How do investors deal with such crises in terms of their risk measurement and management and as a consequence, what are the implications for the chosen investment strategies? The book presents and discusses two different approaches to finance and investing, i.e., modern portfolio theory and behavioral finance, and provides an overview of stock market anomalies and historical crashes. It is intended to serve as a comprehensive introduction to asset and risk management for bachelor’s and master’s students in this field as well as for young professionals in the asset management industry. A key part of this book is the exercises to further demonstrate the concepts presented with examples and a step-by-step business case.

A step-by-step guidebook for understanding—and implementing—integrated financial risk measurement and management The Fundamentals of Risk Measurement introduces the state-of-the-art tools and practices necessary for planning, executing, and maintaining risk management in today’s volatile financial environment. This comprehensive book provides description and analysis of topics including: Economic capital Risk adjusted return on capital (RAROC) Shareholder Value Added (SVA) Value at Risk (VaR) Asset/liability management (ALM) Credit risk for a single facility Credit risk for portfolios Operating risk Inter-risk diversification The Basel Committee Capital Accords The banking world is driven by risk. The Fundamentals of Risk Measurement shows you how to quantify that risk, outlining an integrated framework for risk measurement and management that is straightforward, practical for implementation, and based on the realities of today’s tumultuous global marketplace. “Banks make money in one of two ways: providing services to customers and taking risks. In this book, we address the business of making money by taking risk....”—From the Introduction In The Fundamentals of Risk Measurement, financial industry veteran Chris Marrison examines what banks must do to succeed in the business of making money by taking risk. Encompassing the three primary areas of banking risk—market, credit, and operational—and doing so in a uniquely intuitive, step-by-step format, Marrison provides hands-on details on the primary tools for financial risk measurement and management, including: Plain-English evaluation of specific risk measurement tools and techniques Use of Value at Risk (VaR) for assessment of market risk for trading operations Asset/liability management (ALM) techniques, transfer pricing, and managing market and liquidity risk The many available methods for analyzing portfolios of credit risks Using RAROC to compare the risk-adjusted profitability of businesses and price transactions In addition, woven throughout The Fundamentals of Risk Measurement are principles underlying the regulatory capital requirements of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, and what banks must do to understand and implement them. The requirements are defined, implications of the New Capital Accord are presented, and the major steps that a bank must take to implement the New Accord are discussed. The resulting thumbnail sketch of the Basel Committee, and specifically the New Capital Accord, is valuable as both a ready reference and a foundation for further study of this important initiative. Risk is unavoidable in the financial industry. It can, however, be measured and managed to provide the greatest risk-adjusted return, and limit the negative impacts of risk to a bank’s shareholders as well as potential borrowers and lenders. The Fundamentals of Risk Management provides risk managers with an approach to risk-taking that is both informed and prudent, one that shows operations managers how to control risk exposures as it allows decision-making executives to direct resources to opportunities that are expected to create maximum return with minimum risk. The result is today’s most complete introduction to the business of risk, and a valuable reference for anyone from the floor trader to the officer in charge of overseeing the entire risk management operation.
