Gulf Capital and Islamic Finance: The Rise of the New Global Players
Advance Praise for Gulf Capital & Islamic Finance With the region's increasing prominence in global capital markets, this timely piece is essential for anyone trying to gather a nuanced understanding of the landscape of Gulf capital and the fast-growing Islamic finance industry and the increased 'Shariah-affinity' of its stakeholders. Brilliantly written and easy to read, Aamir Rehman has leveraged a luminous career as a corporate strategist for the Middle East to put together the comprehensive guide to Gulf capital and Islamic finance. -- S. Nazim Ali, Director, Islamic Finance Project, Harvard Law School Aamir Rehman has written a lucid and well-researched guide to tapping capital in the Gulf. He is right that appreciating the underpinnings of Shariah-compliant finance is key to understanding the mindset of Muslim investors. -- Samuel L. Hayes III, Jacob Schiff Professor of Investment Banking, Emeritus, Harvard Business School A timely and useful book on the growing relevance to the global economy of Gulf capital and Islamic finance. Aamir Rehman's deep knowledge, passion, and engagement with the topic have come together in a book that provides insight and practical advice on how to tap into a rapidly growing source of capital. This book will help institutions navigate their way successfully through the growing Islamic finance industry. -- Iqbal Khan, CEO, Fajr Capital, and former founding CEO, HSBC Amanah If you want to understand the meaning and implications of Islamic finance, Aamir Rehman's Gulf Capital and Islamic Finance is the one volume you need on your desk. Written primarily for financial investment professionals with a need to know more about the impact on global markets of GCC investments and Islamic finance, Rehman's newest book makes this formerly ecoteric topic accessible to anyone with an interest in the increasingly important energy-rich Gulf countries. -- Michael W. S. Ryan, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Middle East Institute, and former VP for Administration and Finance, Millennium Challenge Corporation The six countries comprising the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)--Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman--have emerged as a vital source of stable capital and investments that will help power global economics in the coming decades. In Gulf Capital and Islamic Finance, Aamir A. Rehman, the acclaimed author of Dubai & Co.: Global Strategies for Doing Business in the Gulf States, sheds welcome light on the hows and whys of trillions of dollars of Gulf capital, and Shariah-compliant finance--a fast-growing sector that Standard & Poor's values at $750 billion. In addition to incisive analysis of these dynamic, often unfamiliar markets, Rehman examines this sector's growth potential and investment opportunities. Clearly written, brilliantly reasoned, and refreshingly free from geopolitical biases, this book is an excellent resource for professionals seeking to understand Gulf investments, Islamic finance, and their impact on global markets. Inside, you'll find in-depth knowledge on a host of vital topics, including: Background and context on the rise of Gulf capital and Islamic finance: their origins, evolution to date, and current landscape Descriptions of key GCC institutional investors such as sovereign wealth funds, specialist investment vehicles, and private investors Global implications of the rise of these new players--what it means for investors, bankers, regulators, and international markets The role of Gulf capital and Islamic finance in an emerging, multipolar world--and whether they should be seen as opportunities or threats Involvement with Gulf-based investors in international markets is already bearing financial and strategic fruit for savvy global firms, as well as influencing reform in the GCC region. The flow of capital in and out of Shariah-compliant sectors presents tremendous opportunities for those who understand--and are prepared to meet--the aspirations and needs of these investors. Gulf Capital and Islamic Finance provides these firms and professionals with in-depth knowledge that builds a solid platform for dealing with businesses in a region that is assuming a broader role in the global economy.

The Meltdown Years: The Unfolding of the Global Economic Crisis
The Meltdown Yearsoffers the most lucid and useful explanation todate about why home values, life savings, jobsecurity, and investments around the worldare in peril. Rather than focus on who is to blame,though, author Wolfgang Munchau takes themore practical approach of focusing on what isto blame. The fact that individuals were stupid,greedy, and corrupt should come as no surprise.What's remarkable is that our world'sfinancial systems-put in place to help staveoff such a crisis-failed so miserably. What is inherently wrong with the globalmonetary system? What happened to theregulatory process? What role did the creditmarket, hedge funds, and investment banksplay? These are the types of questions onemust answer in order to truly comprehendwhat caused the meltdown and, more importantly,to understand what must be done torepair it. Munchau dissects the global financial system,exposing its flaws and weaknesses in thecontext of the crisis. A decidedly global perspectiveof the greatest financial crisis of ourtime, The Meltdown Years examines The structure of the worldbanking system Global events that led tofinancial collapse The growth of speculative bubbles The descent from financial crisisinto full-out recession Pointing to an unstable global economicsystem as the root of the problem, theauthor predicts how long the recession willand illustrates long-term consequences ofthe meltdown. Apportioning [individual] blame for thiscrisis may be fun, Munchau writes, butit is a dead-end road for anyone who seeksan understanding of what happened. AIG,Alan Greenspan, Fannie Mae, Bear Stearns...Each is portrayed as a villain responsible forthe state of the economy. In truth, the blame ismuch broader and lies much deeper. The Meltdown Years is required readingfor anyone who wants to follow the ongoingdebate about economic recovery and understandwhat the collapse means for the future offinancial capitalism.

Risk Management
This is the all-in-one banker's and financial manager's guide for implementing and using an effective risk management program. In today's world of multibillion-dollar credit losses and bailouts, it has become increasingly imperative for corporate and banking leaders to monitor and manage risk on all fronts. Risk Management introduces and explores the latest financial and hedging techniques in use around the world, and provides the foundation for creating an integrated, consistent, and effective risk management strategy.The tested and comprehensive analysis and insights in Risk Management give bankers and financial managers all the necessary information for: Risk Management Overview - from the history of risk management to the new regulatory and trading environment, a look at risk management past and present; Risk Management Program Design - techniques to organize the risk management function, and design a system to cover your organization's many risk exposures; and, Risk Management Implementation - how to use the myriad systems and products value at risk (VaR), stress-testing, derivatives, and more for measuring and hedging risk in today's marketplace. In the financial world, the need for a dedicated risk management framework is a relatively recent phenomenon. But as the Long-Term Capital Management and BankAmerica crises attest, lack of up-to-date knowledge concerning its many components can be devastating.For financial managers in both the banking and business environments, Risk Management will introduce and illustrate the many aspects of modern risk management and strengthen every financial risk management program. Exploding global competition, increasing regulations, and the ever-changing product mix of innovative, intricate derivative and securitization products have pushed risk management to the forefront of today's financial landscape. Corporate and banking executives trying to make sense of this environment often find themselves wasting valuable time searching for details and actually creating risk through innocent misinterpretations or misguided hedging strategies. Risk Management consolidates the entire field of corporate risk administration from data and technological infrastructure to investment and hedging strategies that include innovative derivatives credit risk securitization techniques into one all-inclusive, easily accessible reference.Michel Crouhy, Dan Galai, and Robert Mark, seasoned finance professionals with an unmatched breadth of experience covering banking, corporate, and academic risk management applications walk you through risk management with the focus on concrete, results-oriented tips and analysis. The result is, quite frankly, the only reference you'll need for a quick, thorough understanding of today's complex financial risk management challenges.Look to the expert analysis and proven suggestions in Risk Management for a no-nonsense overview of: Integrated Risk Management - how to understand and develop the necessary tools for measuring and managing all of your firm's risk in terms of a common unit; Regulatory Environment - group of 30 (G-30) policy recommendations, BIS 1998 models, and the standardized approach proposed by the Basle Committee; Market Risk- new rules set by the SEC for traded companies to disclose their risk management policies and quantify their exposure to market risk; Practical Measurement Issues - utilizing historical, implied, and stochastic models to measure volatility, plus helpful summaries of measuring correlations and the yield curve; and, Future Considerations - expected conditions and effects of the BIS 2000+ Accord, with review of the G-12 recommendations to improve counter party risk management practices. Never before have the fields of banking and corporate financial risk management been as complicated and the stakes as unyielding. Whether used as an essential resource for institutional financial risk management, a comprehensive text for courses concentrating on bank risk management, or simply as an unprecedented reference covering every important aspect of the discipline, Risk Management will bring you up-to-date on an area that promises to increase in importance as we enter the uncharted waters of the 21st century.
