This work investigates the latest developments in commercial banking with regard to the measurement and management of risk and analyzes their effect on mid-market financial institutions. We look at how the implementation of advanced rating techniques influences the competitive position of market participants depending on their portfolio structure and competitive environment. To simulate rating sophistication we assume that in the process of credit assessment banks observe noisy signals about the creditworthiness of credit applicants. In the case of a competitive market then banks offer differing interest rates based on their loss estimates, whereas the customer chooses the credit with the lowest price. A simulation procedure is used in order to quantify the resulting profitability effects. The analysis reveals profitability differentials depending on the rating accuracy in different sections of the portfolio, the structure of the rating scale, and the specific competitive environment.

In view of growing complexity of banks’ business and the dynamic operating environment, risk management has become very significant, especially in the financial sector. Risk at the apex level may be visualized as the probability of a banks’ financial health being impaired due to one or more contingent factors. While the parameters indicating the banks’ health may vary from net interest margin to market value of equity, the factor which can cause the important are also numerous. For management of risk at corporate level, various risks like credit risk, market risk or operational risk have to be converted into one composite measure. Therefore, it is necessary that measurement of operational risk should be in tandem with other measurements of credit and market risk so that the requisite composite estimate can be worked out. So, regarding to international banking rule (Basel Committee Accords) and RBI guidelines the investigation of risk analysis and risk management in Co-Op banks is being most important.
The current situation of the financial sector clearly shows us that the ways of predicting the future losses, along with their monitoring and management, are rather underdeveloped or being taken as separate mathematical models, thus using only quantitative analysis without the qualitative one. The role of the risk-management system cannot be underestimated, especially after (and during) the world economy crisis. The current problem of the Russian risk-management system is the low power given to the risk-management personnel. That’s why one of the key points to the better risk evaluation is the possibility of the risk-management department to report directly to the board of directors, not to the management of the bank, as it is the shareholders’ money to lose. The goal is to find the proper balance between the risk and the profit while presenting the transparency of the business. It should be done in a clear way, better an algorythm, which can be applied in many organisations by the starting employees. This book presents a sample of such an algorythm.
