About Christopher Viney


Chris brings to this book a wealth of industry experience and academic knowledge associated with the international financial markets. His appreciation of the nature of both the theoretic and applied functions and operations of the global financial system is reflected in the clear and interesting presentation of issues in such a way that the reader is motivated to learn.

He has recently retired from his position as a senior lecturer in finance with the School of Accounting and Finance at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia. He taught in the areas of financial markets, financial institutions management, corporate finance, treasury management, and personal financial planning. Chris has taught in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and New Zealand. Also, for a number of years he has led a finance international study program for tertiary students. This structured program visits important financial institutions and markets, multinational corporations, multi-lateral organisations and regulators within financial centres around the world.

Chris has particular research interests in the capital markets, operational risk management, bureau de change, money laundering and education and training. He has conducted research projects within government and the finance industry. A number of recommendations emanating from reports to these organisations have had direct influence in the determination of government legislative changes and on important operational practices within the financial system.

Prior to moving into academia Chris had twenty-seven years' experience in the banking industry in the areas of retail banking, commercial lending, risk management, personnel, property, policy and administration.

Following the passing of Michael McGrath with the first edition of the text, Chris has guided the evolution all subsequent editions whereby the book has now become a principal learning and reference source for undergraduate students, postgraduate students and industry practitioners alike.
