The goal of this book is to provide directors, especially non-management directors who may have little knowledge about banks and their operation, with basic information to help them be intelligent questioners of risk taking and risk management at their institutions. In it, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City shares information gained from years of supervisory experience; information that it believes will help directors meet their oversight responsibilities.
