Anti-Crisis Paradigms of Corporate Governance in Banks: A New Institutional Outlook

Publishing house Virtus Interpress introduces a book on corporate governance titled "Anti-crisis paradigms of corporate governance in banks: a new institutional outlook".

Introduction to the book is written by Professor Oliver Williamson, a Nobel Prize winner 2009.

ISBN 978-966-96872-1-0

Authors: Alexander N. Kostyuk, Fumiko Takeda, Kaoru Hosono

Published: 2010

Number of pages: 464

Cover: hardcover

Synopsis: This book shows that there are differences in the approach to corporate governance adopted in individual countries and in the statutory provisions that underpin governance arrangements. In each instance, however, statute tends to be fixed - or relatively fixed - whereas governance practices reflected in codes tend to be more responsive to changes in approach and application. The nature of change needed to governance arrangements will vary across countries and will depend upon the extent to which behavioral shortfalls in particular companies can be said to have been a contributory factor in their finding themselves more exposed to financial shocks. The lesson from the financial crisis is that the fundamentals behind the “comply or explain” approach remain as strong as ever. The question is how best their application should evolve and whether there are changes in approach relevant to the banking industry that merit broader application.

Corporate Governance in a Transition Economy

Publishing house Virtus Interpress introduces a book on corporate governance titled "Corporate Governance in a transition economy".

ISBN: 966-96566-0-5

Edited by: Alexander N. Kostyuk

Published: 2005

Number of pages: 150

Cover: paperback

Synopsis: The new millennium presented citizens of the corporate world – shareholders, executives, employees and others – with the bankruptcies of Enron and other giants of the most developed segment of the corporate world – the USA. Corporate America, which was perceived before as an example to follow, showed the corporate world citizens many disadvantages in the existing systems and instruments of corporate governance. This rather deflated the trust of shareholders in the existing principles and concepts of corporate governance both in developed and developing countries, including Ukraine. The results of the research, presented in this book are very important for Ukrainian joint stock companies, which suffer from agent conflicts. An increase in agent costs reduces growth opportunities at the market. Therefore, after developing corporate governance mechanisms, such as executive compensation, board of directors and its committees, financial reporting and executive monitoring, it will be possible to say that this research is based on the principle of social responsibility, deflated strongly as a result of the bankruptcies in the USA and worldwide.

Intellectual Capital Reporting Practices in the Non-Profit Sector

Publishing house Virtus Interpress introduces a book that describes main practices of the intellectual capital reporting in the non-profit sector titled "Intellectual Capital Reporting Practices in the Non-Profit Sector".

ISBN 978-966-1569-03-3

Authors: Giovanni Bronzetti, Romilda Mazzotta, Pina Puntillo, Antonella Silvestri, Stefania Veltri

Published: 2011

Number of pages: 138

Cover: paperback

Synopsis: The book focuses on Intellectual Capital (IC) reporting practices within the non-profit sector. The term is an umbrella term, which includes not only the non-profit (or third) sector in strict terms but also all sectors different from the for-profit sector. Nowadays, in knowledge–based economy, knowledge is critical to for-profit as it is to non-profit organizations (NPOs). In a new competitive environment, NPOs are requested to manage the existing resources efficiently and effectively and to create, maintain and develop new resources based on knowledge. In the book we argue that IC, the dynamic and firm-specific system of knowledge-related resources, provides the right conceptual framework to define and systematize intangible resources and, moreover, that an IC report can be considered the right strategic tool to measure, manage and report IC information to NPO’s stakeholders.

Inform and Deform: Do financial analysts mean what they say?

Publishing house Virtus Interpress introduces a book that describes main practices of the financial analyst activity titled "INFORM AND DEFORM: Do financial analysts mean what they say?".

ISBN 978-966-9686-73-2

Authors: Enrico Maria Cervellati Luca Piras

Published: 2012

Number of pages: 112

Cover: paperback

Synopsis:Information is important, since it is the basic ingredient of human reasoning, knowledge and, therefore, action. Particularly it is important in social behavior. Investing in the financial market is definitely a social behavior, requiring skills and expertise, which combine, generate the “art of market” as William Sharpe said. Information is a complex combination of many parts in which data, frame, language, credibility, metaphors, culture, traditions, and so on, contributes to determine individual and social decision making. Thus understanding market theory imply a profound and critical approach to information, to how it is conveyed to investors, to behavioral drivers that influence professional information providers and related biases and, finally to the way individual investors acquire and use it. The introduction in the discussion of the idea of complexity raises the need to determine the conditions for the system to seek and, eventually, to find its equilibrium. This is the final goal of economic models and theories, while in the real life, disequilibrium and chaos seem to be the rule. If this is the case a useful interpretation tool is represented by entropy. Entropy is a thermodynamic quantity representing the unavailability of a system’s thermal energy for conversion into mechanical work, often interpreted as the degree of disorder or randomness in the system.

Synopsis: Recent financial scandals have highlighted the topic of corporate governance and the need for greater transparency and veracity of economic financial communication provided by companies, particularly by listed companies. In recent years, also due to the effect of different collapses of multinational companies held to be solid, the issue of corporate governance is again in the spotlight. The failure of governance and accounting mechanisms of companies such as Enron, WorldCom, Parmalat, arriving at the Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs scandals, as well as the structural changes which have regarded the financial system and, in particular, the growing recourse to the capital markets for the finding of funding sources, have led to the need for greater transparency. This book addresses the topic of public services, which not only cover an important role in the attitude to the satisfaction of the needs of collective interest but also constitute a particular category of assets whose use is of important social interest in modern States, under the occupational profile, of investments and of economic development. The study, conducted by the authors, allowed them to investigate the communication quality of companies operating in the public utilities sector listed on the Italian stock exchange.
