The Handbook of Credit Portfolio Management provides all the information you'll need to successfully rebalance and manage your credit portfolios.

Together with co-author Christian Hoppe and a team of thirty-five international contributors, Greg N. Gregoriou provides strategies for calculating risk-weighted assets, reevaluating hedging strategies, and implementing Basel II standards. Providing a thoroughly global perspective of the subject, this comprehensive guide includes input from Moorad Choudhry (Group Head of Treasury at Europe Arab Bank plc, London); Christophe Godlewski (Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, France); Roland Fuss (University of Freiburg, Germany); and Valerio Potí (Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland), who shed light on such key topics as:
