Description - Structured Finance and Insurance by Christopher L. Culp

A fresh look at how non-financial corporations can use structured finance, insurance, and alternative risk transfer to create value through the integrated management of capital and risk Structured finance, insurance, and alternative risk transfer (ART) are among today's hottest areas of finance. However, recent controversies have created suspicions (often needlessly) about the real purpose of many of these products. Expert Christopher Culp offers the most comprehensive read on these topics. He explores their economic rationale, and takes a detailed look at how recent transactions and deals are representative of the growing trend toward the integrated management of capital and risk in the non-financial corporate sector. In a final section, Culp has secured guest essays from some of the top experts in the field on recent case studies and controversies. Christopher L. Culp, PhD (Chicago, IL), is Director of Risk Management Consulting Services, Inc. in Chicago and Bern, Switzerland, and Senior Fellow in Financial Regulation at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. His previous books from Wiley include Risk Transfer (0-471-46498-8), The Risk Management Process (0-471-40554-X), The ART of Risk Management (0-471-12495-8), and Corporate Aftershock (as coeditor with William Niskanen) (0-471-43002-1). He holds a PhD in finance from The University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business, where he is now an adjunct professor of finance.
