About the book

The Banking and Finance industry plays a significant role in the economy of a nation, thus demands for a continuous research and up-to-date feeds for it to stay competitive and resilient. Due to its revolving and dynamic nature as well as its significance and inter linkages with other industries, a well-functioning banking and finance system is vital in safeguarding the interest of all stakeholders. The hard lessons and experiences learnt in the 1997/98 and 2008/09 financial crises have instigated extensive postmortems and re-evaluations of the banking and finance system among related players in the field as to improve and perhaps share and adopt best practices of every aspect in the industry. Realizing the significant impacts of this industry, this book acts with the objectives to highlight major issues relating to banking and finance and to put forth recent empirical evidences, scientific researches, best practices and recommendations on the topic and other related issues. This book will cover highlights, insights and discussions on all major areas in banking and finance. In the banking area, the topics that will be covered among others are banking regulation, bank risk, liquidity management, intermediaries function, asset-liability management, efficiency, performance and Islamic banking. As for the finance area, the topics are and not limited to equity and bond markets, securities valuation, performance, risk management, capital structure, working capital management, capital budgeting, market efficiency, corporate governance, portfolio management and Islamic finance. With the wide range of topics that it will highlight and discuss, together with recent scientific researches and findings using sophisticated and advanced econometric approaches, this book will not only enrich the literature but also offer policy implications that will benefit all players including academicians and practitioners in the field of banking and finance.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
