about

Multi-Asset Risk Modelingdescribes, in a single volume, the latest and most advanced risk modeling techniques for equities, debt, fixed income, futures and derivatives, commodities, and foreign exchange, as well as advanced algorithmic and electronic risk management. Beginning with the fundamentals of risk mathematics and quantitative risk analysis, the book moves on to discuss the laws in standard models that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis and talks about current and future banking regulation. Importantly, it also explores algorithmic trading, which currently receives sparse attention in the literature. By giving coherent recommendations about which statistical models to use for which asset class, this book makes a real contribution to the sciences of portfolio management and risk management.

  • Covers all asset classes
  • Provides mathematical theoretical explanations of risk as well as practical examples with empirical data
  • Includes sections on equity risk modeling, futures and derivatives, credit markets, foreign exchange, and commodities

".explains advanced risk-modeling techniques for equities, debt, fixed income, futures and derivatives, commodities, and foreign exchange, as well as advanced algorithmic and electronic risk management..focuses on the application of proper volatility and factor models, optimization techniques, and the evaluation of traditional and nontraditional sources of risk."--ProtoView.com, March 2014 "The financial crisis has shown that measurement and control of financial risks is a crucial task for a financial institution that cannot be delegated to a few specialists in the quant department. This very readable book provides a good introduction to many hot issues in financial risk management at a level accessible to the non-specialist."--Ruediger Frey, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien "Multi-Asset Risk Modeling presents a comprehensive overview and summary of methods employed in finance.
