"Managing Bank Risk" - Best Finance Books 2003

Morton Glantz has written a "soup-to-nuts" text on the commercial lending process within banks. The book is exceptional, offering both breadth and depth of coverage. While this is a lengthy book, it is mostly non-technical. It is very well written, making reading a pleasure. End of chapter questions really challenge you to think about issues. The book is suitable for both the novice and experienced practitioner. I recommend it to anyone—from junior loan officer to board member—who is involved in bank commercial lending.


Fordham Graduate School of Business Administration awarded Morton Glantz the Dean’s Award for Faculty Excellence on three occasions. This annual award is given to the adjunct faculty member whose exceptional performance and teaching warrant extraordinary recognition.
