The book Quantitative Financial Risk Management: Theory and Practice provides an invaluable forum for creative and scholarly work on financial risk management, risk models, portfolio management, credit risk modeling, portfolio management, and financial markets throughout the world.
Quantitative financial risk management consists of economics, accounting, statistics, econometrics, mathematics, stochastic processes, and computer science and technology. The tools of financial management are more frequently being applied to manage, monitor, and measure risk, especially in the context of globalization, market volatility, and economic crisis.
The main objectives of this book are to advance knowledge related to risk management and portfolio optimization, as well as to generate theoretical knowledge with the aim of promoting research within various sectors wherein financial markets operate. Chapters will relate to one of these areas, will have a theoretical and/or empirical problem orientation, and will demonstrate innovation in theoretical and empirical analyses, methodologies, and applications.
