De-regulation, liberalization and integration of financial markets coupled with the development of innovative and complex financial products have changed the landscape of International Banking and Finance in the twenty-first century. The globalization of financial markets enabled businesses to go global for both funding requirements operations. International
Financial Management and Foreign Exchange Management have gained prominence in the day to day operations of not only financial institutions but also corporates. The global financial markets have thus become an effective conduit for high volumes of cross-border capital flows leveraged by the IT and also for global systemic risk.
