Billy Wilder Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard (1950) is one of the most famous films in the history of Hollywood, and perhaps no film better represents Hollywood's vision of itself. Billy Wilder collaborated on the screenplay with the very able Charles Brackett, and with D. M. Marshman Jr., who later joined the team. Together they created a film both allusive and literate, with Hollywood's worst excesses and neuroses laid out for all to see. After viewing Sunset Boulevard Louis B. Mayer exclaimed: «We should throw this Wilder out of town!» The New York Times , however, gave the movie a rave review, praising «that rare blend of pungent writing, expert acting, masterly direction, and unobtrusively artistic photography.» The film was nominated for Best Picture, and Wilder won an Academy Award for Best Story and Best Screenplay.This facsimile edition of Sunset Boulevard makes it possible to get as much pleasure from reading the highly intelligent screenplay as from seeing the film. Jeffrey Meyers's introduction provides an intriguing array of background details about Wilder, the film's casting and production, and the lives of those connected to what has become a classic.

Aldo Soprano Liquidity Management. A Funding Risk Handbook

Robust management of liquidity risk within the changing regulatory framework Liquidity Management applies current risk management theory, techniques, and processes to liquidity risk control and management to help organizations prepare in case of future economic crisis and changing regulatory framework. Based on extensive research conducted on banks' datasets, this book addresses the practical challenges and critical issues that frequently go unmentioned, and discusses the recent impact of sovereign crises on banks' liquidity processes and approaches. Market practices and regulatory stances are reviewed and compared to bank treasuries' response to liquidity crunches, refinancing risks are explored in the context of Basel 3, and alternative funding is analyzed in terms of resilience and allocation. Coverage includes the recent crisis, new regulations, and the techniques, processes, and strategies banks use in managing liquidity risk. The 2008 and 2010 crises brought liquidity risk out of the shadows as even profitable and well-capitalized banks were swept away with breathtaking speed. This book reviews modeling and internal process design in the context of the structural change in market conditions on banks' refinancing and control requirements, helping readers rethink and re-design their organization's approach to liquidity risk. Understand the new liquidity regulatory framework and the implications for banks Study the latest liquidity measurement models, with stress testing and scenario analysis Discover the effect of illiquid financing markets and possible lasting impacts Compare market liquidity and warning signals that detect further deterioration With much of the world still reeling from history, it's important that liquidity risk become a major focus going forward. This practical guide provides valuable information, but also real, actionable steps that can be taken today to forecast and mitigate risks with an eye toward greater stability and security. Liquidity Management is a thorough, comprehensive guide to a more robust management of liquidity risk.

Thomas Padberg How to Analyse Bank Financial Statements

The financial statements of banks differ very much from those of non-banks. The assets and liabilities are mostly financial based, and the equity ratio is far lower than the equity ratios of industrial companies. Banking supervision has a big influence on the financial statements too. Recent years have shown the risks which can evolve from banks, but normal instruments of financial statement analysis are not sufficient to analyse banks and locate these risks: different methods are needed.
This book, by experienced bank analyst Thomas Padberg, provides analysts and investors with the tools to analyse bank financial statements, find problems in bank finances, and assess the risks of banks. Examples with real bank financial data are used to show readers the step-by-step methods to follow when looking at bank financial statements.
The book covers:
– The specific accounting rules that apply to banks – How to analyse bank segment reporting – The ratios to use when analysing bank financial statements – How to analyse bank profit and loss accounts – Equity analysis and stock analysis of banks
This is an essential guide for all analysts and serious investors who need to analyse bank financial statements.
