Modern western societies have a paradoxical relationship with risks. On the
one hand, there is the utopian quest for a zero-risk society. On the other
hand, human activities may increase risks of all kinds, from collaterals of new
technologies to global impacts on the planet. The characteristic multiplication
of major risks in modern society and its reﬂexive impact on its development
is at the core of the concept of the “Risk Society”

“The book represents a fresh and innovative departure from ‘traditional’ approaches to modelling of securities data. Subsequently, it also presents much more flexible ways to analyze and process the data. Even if you are not involved with re-architecting an organization’s master data handling, there are numerous ideas, principles, and nuggets that make it a worthwhile read.” –Dr.

This book is based on a series of seminars delivered over a period of many years to people
working in the global financial markets. The material has expanded and evolved over that
time. Participation on the seminars has covered the widest possible spectrum in terms of
age, background and seniority, ranging all the way from new graduate entrants to the financial
services industry up to very senior managing directors.
The past year has been one of great turmoil, with the global financial markets on the brink of collapse
and organizations struggling amid a worldwide recession, regardless of industry. Among the many effects
of this crisis, management and boards of directors are looking more closely than ever at risk, finance,
governance and operations to ensure that all proper controls are in place and functioning properly, that their
IT systems and data are secure, and that they are leveraging working capital to the greatest extent possible.
The financial crisis has, to put it mildly, seriously challenged our traditional approach to risk management.
Consequently, a number of individuals and institutions have advanced ideas for improving not only the analytical
framework, but also the status and relevance of risk management.
This report, not only reacts to the most recent episode (although we indeed reference many relevant examples),
it also attempts to address a deeper problem: the demonstrated inability of the global financial system to
constructively mitigate and deal with financial crises.
As deregulation and liberalisation has led to the emergence of global financial
markets, banks expanded their international operations and moved into multiple lines
of financial business. They developed complex risk management strategies that have
allowed them to price financial products and hedge their risk exposures in a manner
that improves expected profits, but which may generate more risk and increase
liquidity problems in certain circumstances.
The process for coping with the crisis by countries across the globe has been manifest in four
basic phases. The first has been intervention to contain the contagion and restore confidence in
the system. This has required extraordinary measures both in scope, cost, and extent of
government reach. The second has been coping with the secondary effects of the crisis,
particularly the global recession and flight of capital from countries in emerging markets and
elsewhere that have been affected by the crisis.
Until now little had been known about the global reach of the financial sector—the
extent of financial inclusion and the degree to which such groups as the poor,
women, and youth are excluded from formal financial systems. Systematic indica-
tors of the use of different financial services had been lacking for most economies.
The Global Financial Inclusion (Global Findex) database provides such indicators.
