Equal treatment in access to credit has long been a fundamental social goal in the United States. However, despite the passage of several laws in the U.S. prohibiting discrimination in the provision of financial services on the basis of race, gender, and marital status, among other factors, questions concerning the existence of racial discrimination in such areas as home mortgage loans and small business credit continue, and confound public policy makers. This book is composed of nine articles and a panel discussion, originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Financial Services Research. These contributions explore the complex issue of discrimination in financial services.

Clearing forms the core part of a smooth and efficiently functioning financial market infrastructure. Traditionally, it has been provided by clearing houses, most of which today act as a 'central counterparty' (CCP) between the two sides of a trade. The rapid growth of cross-border trading has sparked discussion on the most efficient industry structure - particularly in Europe and the US. At the heart of this discussion lies the question of whether the implementation of a single clearing house creates greater benefits than a more competitive but interlinked market structure. This is the starting point for this book, which analyses the efficiency of clearing and clearing industry structure. Along with clear-cut definitions and a concise characterisation and descriptive analysis of the clearing industry, the book determines the efficiency impact of various cross-border integration and harmonisation initiatives between CCPs. This serves to identify the most preferable future structure for the clearing industry.
From the author of The Marketing Handbook for Financial Advisors, this short guide provides a to-the-point explanation of how to build a compliant and effective profile as well as guidance on how to build new and existing client relationships.
This book shines a beam of light towards tomorrow's network architectures and their emerging service environments, while considering the transformation that has already taken place. From the perspective of the rapid changes that have already shaken the industry, the authors examine the road ahead for communications: - is it a consolidation of technologies or a structural transformation? One thing is clear - the future communication environment will be fundamentally different from what we experience today.
The book presents an analysis of the major catalytic shifts that are shaping the telecommunications world: Â Software-Defined Networking, Virtualization, and Cloud Computing. These technologies can be deployed in traditional ways, and transform services via a 'slow burn' approach, or can be constructed as bolder designs of advanced infrastructures that revolutionize the whole landscape and its value chains.
When searching for the appropriate strategic path, this book can guide the reader through the maze of possible architectural choices, driven by discriminating, and sometimes conflicting business considerations. The book shows how these different technologies can be integrated, and how such integration can enable new services, and probably new business opportunities.
Software assumes a definitive role in the vision of the future network, in every industry, including communications. In particular, the integration of new ICT capabilities will continue to shape the evolution of communication systems towards a new smarter environment that will enrich human communication. This process of 'softwarization' disrupts the current status quo at equipment development, network installation, network management, operations and business levels. The effects change who the stakeholders are, how they interact and what roles they play. Hence, it is important to understand the impact of steps towards softwarization and turn the effects into advantages.<
In future, ICT ecosystem could latch on to new technologies that enable an entirely new paradigm, e.g. smart environments where the application domains are backed up by shared networking, not individual networks that also support some applications. Characterized by its unique user-centric approach, this book presents a view of evolution driven by the need to satisfy the human requirements, whether in person-to-person or in machine interactions. Growing user power is becoming a key motivator in reforming the communication paradigm and in accelerating the softwarization process.Â
