Praise for The Moorad Choudhry Anthology
A worthy book for professionals and students alike. Whether you want to refer to a product or a technical formula or learn afresh, the easy-to-read style of this book from an author who is very deep rooted in everyday banking business promotes great understanding, as well enjoyment from the activities of both generating profit and minimising risks.

"I wish this book had been around when I did my MBA. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to be both comprehensively and thoughtfully briefed about the banking sector. I particularly appreciated the section on governance, as this is rarely included in such discussions, but is always the dog that doesn't bark when things go wrong. As such, The Moorad Choudhry Anthology should grace the table of every bank boardroom in the world."
-Dr Eve Poole

"Moorad manages to describe a comprehensive and complex area of banking in a lively and readable language. As a Group Chief Financial & Risk Officer I have had great professional benefit of the description of the role of the Asset & Liability Committee, the risk policy, reporting and stress testing as well as the description of the day-to-day management in the risk and treasury departments. It was also rewarding for me to read the final chapters about best practice in capital and funding management and corporate governance, which we should not forget, when we enter into the next period of bull markets. I can highly recommend this book as a handy reference work for anyone who is involved in banking strategy, ALM and liquidity risk management."
Group Chief Financial & Risk Officer, Saxo Bank A/S, Copenhagen
"Not very often does a monograph come along that consolidates a field's existing body of research and practitioners' insights into a comprehensive, accessible best-practice framework. The Moorad Choudhry Anthology achieves this feat; it builds on his earlier Principles of Banking , widely recognised as the bible in the ALM and bank risk management field. More than that though, Anthology is a fun, fascinating read, benefiting from Professor Choudhry's signature witty and straight-to-the-point writing style as well as from his substantial previous academic research and professional experience as banking executive.
Anthology is educational without being prescriptive, encouraging practitioners to pick and mix those elements from a rich analytical toolbox that suit their institutional and market contexts. Given the depth and breadth of its coverage and its clear, methodical organisation, the book is suitable for anyone interested in this fascinating field at the core of modern banking, from the graduate preparing for a job interview to the seasoned professional looking for a comprehensive and detailed exposition of current best practice."

"Moorad, you are a great team player and you have the heart that a South American footballer requires!"

Moorad Choudhry Anthology is quite simply, the bible of banking. Anyone who is serious about a career in this industry needs a copy. We eagerly await the next book in the series from the author, who is without doubt a guru in his field.
