Book Description
It is widely acknowledged that many financial modelling techniques failed during the financial crisis, and in our postcrisis environment many techniques are being reconsidered. This single volume provides a guide to lessons learned for practitioners and a reference for academics. Including reviews of traditional approaches, real examples, and case studies, contributors consider portfolio theory; methods for valuing equities and equity derivatives, interest rate derivatives, and hybrid products; and techniques for calculating risks and implementing investment strategies. Describing new approaches without losing sight of their classical antecedents, this collection of original articles presents a timely perspective on our postcrisis paradigm. Highlights precrisis best classical practices, identifies postcrisis key issues, and examines emerging approaches to solving those issues
 Singles out key factors one must consider when valuing or calculating risks in the postcrisis environment
 Presents material in a homogenous, practical, clear, and not overly technical manner
