Our third title in our ground breaking Risk on the iPad series, “Asset Liability Management & Value at Risk Test Bank“  is now available for sale on the Apple iTunes iBook Store.

Customers asked for a self contained, self assessment iBook based on our earlier Value at Risk (VaR) and Asset Liability Management (ALM) titles. Our third title for the iPad does just that. Based on quizzes and questions from Value at Risk (VaR) and ALM titles, we added two detailed step by step case studies that will help you follow calculations, concepts and logic.

With 65 pages, this iBook is a supplementary study aide to our earlier release of Calculating Value at Risk and Understanding ALM. Both titles were recently featured in the New and Noteworthy section in finance on the Apple iBook store.

This title includes:

I.    ALM topic quiz on interest rate and interest rate mismatch risk measurement tools

ii.    ALM case study quiz that tests the concepts of Duration & interest rate sensitivity and impact of interest rate sensitivity on shareholders’ equity and net interest income (NII)

iii.    VaR topic quiz covering VaR methods and risk management framework

iv.    VaR case study quiz that showcases how VaR is calculated for a portfolio comprising of Gold & Oil

v.    Answers with detailed explanations

Vi    Detailed case study walkthroughs that demonstrate and explain how questions and examples may be solved in EXCEL using a simple spread sheet.

The Apple iBook unfortunately is only available in the following countries in Asia, Europe and North America. We are trying to work with Apple to make new stores available in the Middle East and the Sub Continent and would love to get you involved in that effort.

There is a valid and powerful case to be made for adding iBook stores for Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Pakistan and UAE.
