The efficient operation of financial intermediaries - banks, insurance and pension fund firms, government agencies - is instrumental for the efficient functioning of the financial system and the fuelling of the economies of the twenty-first century. But what drives the performance of these institutions in today's global environment? The interdisciplinary and international perspective of this volume offers a deep understanding of the drivers of performance in financial institutions. World-renowned scholars from economics, finance, operations management and marketing, and leading industry professionals, bring their expertise to bear. Among their concerns are: the definition and measurement of the efficiency of such institutions; benchmarks of efficiency; identification of performance drivers and measurement of their effects; the impact of financial innovation and information technologies on performance; the effects of process design, human resource management policies and regulations on efficiency; and interrelationships between risk management and operational efficiency.

Each year we pay billions in fees to those who run our financial system. The money comes from our bank accounts, our pensions, our borrowing, and often we aren't told that the money has been taken. These billions may be justified if the finance industry does a good job, but as this book shows, it too often fails us. Financial institutions regularly place their business interests first, charging for advice that does nothing to improve performance, employing short-term buying strategies that are corrosive to building long-term value, and sometimes even concealing both their practices and their investment strategies from investors. In their previous prizewinning book, The New Capitalists, the authors demonstrated how ordinary people are working together to demand accountability from even the most powerful corporations. Here they explain how a tyranny of errant expertise, naive regulation, and a misreading of economics combine to impose a huge stealth tax on our savings and our economies. More important, the trio lay out an agenda for curtailing the misalignments that allow the financial industry to profit at our expense. With our financial future at stake, this is a book that analysts, economists, policy makers, and anyone with a retirement nest egg can't afford to ignore.

Today, the financial sector may be considered as the most mature sector compared to other economic sectors in the Arab economy. It uses local as well as foreign currencies in matter of exchanges and in measuring value of investment. The financial sector offers services through the process of buying money, financial instruments and securities or financial services in certain situation, and then reselling these money or financial instruments or services in another situation. The institutions that provide such services are called intermediary financial institutions, while the places of selling and buying money and financial instruments are known as financial markets. Accordingly, the financial sector includes besides the national currency, two major parts, financial markets and financial institutions, which have different merits, functions and mechanisms. Thus, this book is devoted to the financial institutions besides the issue of national currency in the Arab economy.
