Although there are a number of publications covering records management generically, very few are focused on the specific challenges of particular sectors, and fewer still on current regulatory, legal and governance issues associated with managing records in global banking and finance businesses. This timely book fills this gap by exploring these complex issues fully, and offers strategies and examples of best practice to meet the recordkeeping challenges to which they give rise in corporate and commercial banking enterprises operating in global capital markets. The examples and cases studies encompass recordkeeping in investment banking, asset management, brokerage and other financial services which serve global markets, and the book will be of particular significance to the financial sector. However, covering as it does the issues that arise from operating across borders and jurisdictions, it will also be of relevance to multi-national businesses in other sectors. The key chapters cover: setting the scene: background and concepts regulatory and legal compliance common trends in financial services: balancing risk and return litigation-related issues recordkeeping approaches. Whilst the expert team of authors are careful to ensure that the book reflects recognized records management principles, the accessible language used will assure its value to information professionals and others without a formal records management background. Readership: This much-needed textbook will be essential reading for records managers, archivists and information professionals who manage records in the financial sector. It will also be invaluable for individuals engaged in a wide range of disciplines who rely on records to meet the increasing number of legal and regulatory obligations to which institutions engaged in global banking and finance are now subject. These include: compliance professionals, data protection officers, governance professionals, regulators and risk managers, senior managers and directors, chief operating officers and IT specialists.

Whatever your favourite tipple, when you pour yourself a drink, you have the past in a glass. You can likely find them all in your own kitchen — beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, cola. Line them up on the counter, and there you have it: thousands of years of human history in six drinks. Tom Standage opens a window onto the past in this tour of six beverages that remain essentials today. En route he makes fascinating forays into the byways of western culture: Why were ancient Egyptians buried with beer? Why was wine considered a “classier” drink than beer by the Romans? How did rum grog help the British navy defeat Napoleon? What is the relationship between coffee and revolution? And how did Coca-Cola become the number one poster-product for globalization decades before the term was even coined?
