Quantitative portfolio management has become a highly specialized discipline. Computing power and software improvements have advanced the field to a level that would not have been thinkable when Harry Markowitz began the modern era of quantitative portfolio management in 1952. In addition toraw computing power, major advances in financial economics and econometrics have shaped academia and the financial industry over the last 60 years. While the idea of a general theory of finance is still only a distant hope, asset managers now have tools in the financial engineering kit that addressspecific problems in their industry. The Oxford Handbook of Quantitative Asset Management consists of seven sections that explore major themes in current theoretical and practical use. These themes span all aspects of a modern quantitative investment organization. Contributions from academics and practitioners working in leadinginvestment management organizations bring together the key theoretical and practical aspects of the field to provide a comprehensive overview of the major developments in the area.

Editorial Reviews

"An invaluable and timely contribution to the latest thinking in the field. While loaded with quantitative theory, it is surprisingly application-oriented, and even the least quantitative asset manager will take something useful away from this book to apply to his or her own practice. It is amust for academics involved in this area of research. A handsomely produced and welcome addition to the corpus of investment management research and application, and well deserves the title of Handbook." --FT Adviser
