A Library of Banking Regs on CD-ROM

With Bankregs Plus on CD-Rom bankers can point and click their way to data, as opposed to flipping through thousands of pages of banking regulations. The CD holds the equivalent of 65 pounds worth of information.

Search & Research Publishing's Bankregs Plus includes the five-volume text of the United States Code of Federal Regulations; the three-binder set of FDIC Manuals; the four-binder Federal Reserve Regulatory Service; and the two-volume OCC Comptroller's Manual for National Banks. All changes published in the Federal Register, FDIC letters, bulletins, and circulars, and OCC bulletins are included in each update.

Special features include an "electric highlighter," allowing the user to highlight and name a block of text and return to that text at a later date by entering the name; "sticky notes," which allow the user to post personalized notes next to specific data; and a "shadow file," a template placed over text on which the user can make marks and notations.

The CD-ROM is updated quarterly, but bankers can get information online or request diskettes containing current changes. The price for Bankregs Plus on CD-ROM or disk is $99.

Handbook provides an in-depth look at ADRs

American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) have caught the attention of investors trying to capitalize on the foreign investment boom.

The McGraw-Hill Handbook of American Depositary Receipts is a volume devoted solely to these 60-year old, equity-based financial instruments. The primer features contributions from 16 banking, investment managers, accounting, legal, and communications advisory firms, including the Bank of New York, Smith Barney, KPMG Peat Marwick, and Standard & Poor's.

The handbook distinguishes between sponsored, unsponsored, and recently approved "private placement" 144A issues on the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, and OTC markets. It explains how to analyze, value, and trade ADRs to reduce risk and improve portfolio performance and discusses the regulations that guide ADRs. The volume contains a list of all 1,000-plus ADRs from more than 50 foreign companies. The handbook costs $59.95.
