Special Issue on: “Measuring and Managing Financial Risk”

Guest Editors:

The new Capital Adequacy Framework (Basel II) is due to be implemented in 2007. This new framework specifies guidelines for managing credit, market and operational risk. Basel II compliance is probably one of the major challenges for banks in terms of implementing financial risk models and technological solutions. Indeed, despite the enormous progress of the recent years, there is still room for further development.

The objective of this special issue is to set up a forum to present new ideas and contributions from experts in the field of banking and finance. Researchers are invited to submit original, high quality, papers in the areas of credit, market, operational and model risk.
