Global banking by Roy C Smith( Book )

56 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Global Banking, Roy C. Smith and Ingo Walter assess the transformation that is taking place world-wide in the financial industry - its causes, its course, and its consequences. Beginning with an overview of recent developments, the authors consider the major dimensions of international banking, including the issue of cross-border risk evaluation and exposure management and the creation of a viable regulatory framework in a global competitive context. The authors link the field of international commercial banking with international investment banking. They identify the factors that distinguish winners from losers in each activity of global financial services. Global Banking concludes with a section on the problems of strategic position and execution. This book will be essential reading for anyone involved in the worldwide financial industry, as well as students of international banking and financial markets
Comeback : the restoration of American banking power in the new world economy by Roy C Smith( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1980s were grim years in American banking. Massive loan losses, disintermediation, global competition, and management mistakes caused many failures, forced restructuring, and did enormous damage to the power and prestige of the country's largest banks, which fell far behind their international rivals in world rankings. Yet, today, American banking institutions are back on top, leading the world in transaction volume, innovation, and in the reach of their services. In this timely book, former investment banker Roy C. Smith tells the story of this remarkable "comeback," by analyzing changes and competitive developments in U.S. finance during the past several years and comparing these to events in Europe and Japan. Looking across the banking and securities industries on three continents, Smith demonstrates how the basis of banking competitiveness is changing, from the size of assets and stability of systems protected by regulation to market know-how, innovation, and technology. European banks, he shows, are in the early stages of a free-market renaissance for which many are competitively ill-prepared. Even for the powerful German banks, events in Eastern Europe and East Germany will continue to be a troublesome distraction. In Japan, banks and brokers have been weakened by losses and scandal and now face major regulatory changes that will disrupt their once safe and profitable franchises. With the tide turning, Smith argues, the U.S. survivors of the restructurings of the 1980s will spearhead a recovery of American financial power. To do so, U.S. banking and finance will necessarily split into two distinct parts: large, technologically advanced retail companies and market-oriented investment bankers and wholesalers

Governing the Modern Corporation analyzes the structure of market capitalism and what went wrong during one of the must turbulent times in American and indeed global finance."

6 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Smith was a Scottish professor of moral philosophy. He published his classic The Wealth of Nations in 1776, the year the American Revolution began. Smith became widely known for his ideas of free markets, laissez-faire commerce, and the "invisible hand." Yet English politicians, landed gentry, and the nobility paid little attention and enacted none of Smith's suggested reforms." "The American colonies, however, began their existence as an independent nation in 1781 with no money, no industry, no banks, and deep in debt. The Founding Fathers - particularly Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin - turned to the ideas of Adam Smith to create and jump-start an economic system for America with both immediate and long-sustained results." "This little-known but vital part of U.S. history is now revealed in Roy C. Smith's highly readable new book."--Jacket
The wealth creators : the rise of today's new rich and super-rich by Roy C Smith( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the Beginning of 2000, there were nearly three hundred billionaires and five million millionaires living in the United States. Total household wealth had reached $37 trillion, up from just over $8 trillion when Ronald Reagan became president." "This enormous increase in wealth is the result of significantly changed government policies, the effects of new technology, and increased competition and globalization around the world. All these changes have opened the door to a wide range of enterprising people who created great fortunes for themselves, their investors, and the country - all in the '80s and '90s."
Street smarts : linking professional conduct with shareholder value in the securities industry by Roy C Smith( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a forceful call to action for Wall Street leaders to strengthen and protect their shareholders' value by instituting and maintaining much higher professional standards. Smith and Walter argue that it is not enough for firms to rely on surveillance and compliance efforts to prevent their people from stepping over the line of legal and appropriate conduct; reputations in the finance world are too important. Connecting professional conduct to shareholder value, the authors call for immediate action. The industry, they contend, needs to create an environment in which each firm develops its leaders and individual managers to take responsibility for shaping and upholding the standards through creative and supportive employee development and retention programs
