Summary and Info
Practical tools and advice for managing financial risk, updated for a post-crisis worldAdvanced Financial Risk Management bridges the gap between the idealized assumptions used for risk valuation and the realities that must be reflected in management actions. It explains, in detailed yet easy-to-understand terms, the analytics of these issues from A to Z, and lays out a comprehensive strategy for risk management measurement, objectives, and hedging techniques that apply to all types of institutions. Written by experienced risk managers, the book covers everything from the basics of present value, forward rates, and interest rate compounding to the wide variety of alternative term structure models.Revised and updated with lessons from the 2007-2010 financial crisis, Advanced Financial Risk Management outlines a framework for fully integrated risk management. Credit risk, market risk, asset and liability management, and performance measurement have historically been thought of as separate disciplines, but recent developments in financial theory and computer science now allow these views of risk to be analyzed on a more integrated basis. The book presents a performance measurement approach that goes far beyond traditional capital allocation techniques to measure risk-adjusted shareholder value creation, and supplements this strategic view of integrated risk with step-by-step tools and techniques for constructing a risk management system that achieves these objectives.Practical tools for managing risk in the financial worldUpdated to include the most recent events that have influenced risk managementTopics covered include the basics of present value, forward rates, and interest rate compounding; American vs. European fixed income options; default probability models; prepayment models; mortality models; and alternatives to the Vasicek model Comprehensive and in-depth, Advanced Financial Risk Management is an essential resource for anyone working in the financial field.Content: Chapter 1 A Risk Management Synthesis: Market Risk, Credit Risk, Liquidity Risk, and Asset and Liability Management (pages 1–14): Chapter 2 Risk, Return, Performance Measurement, and Capital Regulation (pages 15–41): Chapter 3 Interest Rate Risk Introduction and Overview (pages 43–58): Chapter 4 Fixed Income Mathematics: The Basic Tools (pages 59–72): Chapter 5 Yield Curve Smoothing (pages 73–122): Chapter 6 Introduction to Heath, Jarrow, and Morton Interest Rate Modeling (pages 123–141): Chapter 7 HJM Interest Rate Modeling with Rate and Maturity?Dependent Volatility (pages 142–160): Chapter 8 HJM Interest Rate Modeling with Two Risk Factors (pages 161–189): Chapter 9 HJM Interest Rate Modeling with Three Risk Factors (pages 190–229): Chapter 10 Valuation, Liquidity, and Net Income (pages 230–249): Chapter 11 Interest Rate Mismatching and Hedging (pages 250–256): Chapter 12 Legacy Approaches to Interest Rate Risk Management (pages 257–282): Chapter 13 Special Cases of Heath, Jarrow, and Morton Interest Rate Modeling (pages 283–315): Chapter 14 Estimating the Parameters of Interest Rate Models (pages 316–332): Chapter 15 An Introduction to Credit Risk: Using Market Signals in Loan Pricing and Performance Measurement (pages 333–358): Chapter 16 Reduced Form Credit Models and Credit Model Testing (pages 359–395): Chapter 17 Credit Spread Fitting and Modeling (pages 396–420): Chapter 18 Legacy Approaches to Credit Risk (pages 421–452): Chapter 19 Valuing Credit Risky Bonds (pages 453–472): Chapter 20 Credit Derivatives and Collateralized Debt Obligations (pages 473–492): Chapter 21 European Options on Bonds (pages 493–512): Chapter 22 Forward and Futures Contracts (pages 513–530): Chapter 23 European Options on Forward and Futures Contracts (pages 531–547): Chapter 24 Caps and Floors (pages 548–566): Chapter 25 Interest Rate Swaps and Swaptions (pages 567–579): Chapter 26 Exotic Swap and Options Structures (pages 580–595): Chapter 27 American Fixed Income Options (pages 596–621): Chapter 28 Irrational Exercise of Fixed Income Options (pages 622–638): Chapter 29 Mortgage?Backed Securities and Asset?Backed Securities (pages 639–655): Chapter 30 Nonmaturity Deposits (pages 656–674): Chapter 31 Foreign Exchange Markets (pages 675–681): Chapter 32 Impact of Collateral on Valuation Models: The Example of Home Prices in the Credit Crisis (pages 682–693): Chapter 33 Pricing and Valuing Revolving Credit and Other Facilities (pages 694–699): Chapter 34 Modeling Common Stock and Convertible Bonds on a Default?Adjusted Basis (pages 700–707): Chapter 35 Valuing Insurance Policies and Pension Obligations (pages 708–715): Chapter 36 Value?at?Risk and Risk Management Objectives Revisited at the Portfolio and Company Level (pages 717–734): Chapter 37 Liquidity Analysis and Management: Examples from the Credit Crisis (pages 735–764): Chapter 38 Performance Measurement: Plus Alpha vs. Transfer Pricing (pages 765–782): Chapter 39 Managing Institutional Default Risk and Safety and Soundness (pages 783–792): Chapter 40 Information Technology Considerations (pages 793–799): Chapter 41 Shareholder Value Creation and Destruction (pages 800–808):
