Oliver Everling and Karl-Heinz Goedeckemeyer (publisher): Bank Ratings: Banks under Scrutiny, Dr. Th. Gabler, Wiesbaden 1st edition April 2004, http://www.gabler-verlag.de, hardcover, 581 pages, ISBN 3-409-12513-2.
There is a close correlation between the rating of a bank or savings bank by a rating agency and the rating created by a credit institution: Only if the bank is able to correctly assess and manage its own risk potential can it receive a positive rating from a rating agency. This is of central importance, because credit rating agencies de facto dictate to banks on what conditions they can place financial instruments on the international money and capital markets and obtain capital and thus fulfill their economic functions.
In this anthology, renowned experts give a practical insight into the process of bank rating, explain prerequisites for a good rating and explain instruments and methods of risk identification and control. The book also provides impulses for the theoretical discussion of the role of rating agencies.
