Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra India (PressExposure) October 02, 2007 -- Bharat Book Bureau, a leading market information aggregator has put forth a report- Performance Measurement in Financial Institutions in an ERM Framework: A Practitioner Guide

Focusing on internal business unit performance, this in-depth practitioner guide addresses both traditional and risk-adjusted performance measures in financial institutions, providing you with the tools to implement a ‘balanced scorecard’ approach to performance measurement.


As performance measurement in financial institutions moves progressively away from traditional measures and towards the objective of shareholder value creation, finance professionals now need to understand many new drivers of performance which are unfamiliar to them. Risk professionals must also be aware of how measures of risk integrate with financial and operational drivers of the new measures of performance. In the spirit of enterprise risk management, you will benefit from an integral treatment of the three pillars of internal performance measurement in a financial institution:

• Funds transfer pricing • Economic capital • Expense allocation

You will get a look at Basel II from the perspective of improved financial and operational performance. Furthermore, you will be introduced to the concept of ‘balanced scorecards’, a new approach of balancing financial and non-financial drivers of performance.

This practical new title addresses segment reporting and examines the issues and pitfalls of comparing performances across units and institutions as well as factors related to performance and compensation in financial institutions, which are rarely found in this type of literature. Focusing on internal business unit performance, this in-depth reference handbook will enable you to successfully measure and control performance. It is recommended for chief financial officers, treasurers, financial analysts, accountants, chief risk officers, risk managers, auditors and management consultants engaged in financial consulting to financial institutions.
