e-Finance: The Electronic Revolution


e-Finance: The Electronic Revolution is the first comprehensive and practical attempt to chart the history, progress and future of B2B and B2C electronic financial services. It explains clearly and concisely how and why the world of retail and institutional finance has started a migration from conventional foundations to computerized, Internet-driven practices, and considers where such efforts will ultimately lead. Industry examples from different countries and markets are included throughout the book to illustrate the expansion, failures, successes, and future of electronic finance.
The book is aimed at a general financial audience and includes specific discussion about:
* the key elements that have made electronic commerce a reality, focusing on the creation and expansion of the Internet/advances in communications/computers (technology), the development of e-commerce business models (ideas), and the availability of venture capital/equity to fund growth (capital);
* the nature of the financial products, services and information that are available to institutional and individual customers around the world (along with their relative costs, benefits, and drawbacks);
* the advantages/disadvantages of traditional and virtual finance, potential areas of growth and consolidation, and the future path of the industry in a rapidly-changing environment (with a particular focus on competition and market structures).
