Recent market boom-busts have happened, and will continue to happen partly because apparently reputable institutions oversell risky or worthless investments.

Following Enron, Worldcom, Equitable Life and other scandals it is apparent that a new investment methodology is required to protect investors. Rather then relying on market reputation, investors need to be able to look past the sales hype to discover the true situation.

Operational risk management and a forensic investigation of investment provide the groundwork for such a methodology. Investment Risk Management explains

  • why market boom-busts occur in the trade of worthless stocks
  • why regulators react slowly to investment scams
  • when pension funds fail to protect their investors
  • when investors pay for worthless 'professional' services
  • how companies pay too much for management 'stars'
  • whether Basel II and IAS accounting rules protect the investor

"Investment Risk Management can easily end up buried in technicalities while missing the context. There is a refreshing style linking theory with well-reported case histories that gives anyone accessibility to the subject. This is an ideal book for the growing band of 'Risk Professionals' needing a broader understanding of their field. It takes you on a journey from the use of the Arc to BASEL II as methods of risk mitigation while transferring knowledge of valuable techniques on the way."
-Simon Lamoon, Programme Manager, M&G Limited, Retail Operations

"Yen Chong has advised banks and financial institutions in a wide variety of countries. As such, he has seen a lot of what he writes about in Investment Risk Management. He builds a strong case for investments in risk management. The stakes are high, as are the costs of risk management. After making a case for risk management, Mr Chong goes on to recommend strategies and tools for a balanced approach to avoiding, controlling or mitigating the inevitable financial risks all businesses face in today's uncertain world."
-Prof. Charles Scott, Sellinger School of Business, Loyola College, Baltimore

-Dr Mamdouh Barakat, President and CEO, MBRM - MB Risk Management
