Synopsis

"Market Risk Analysis" is the most comprehensive, rigorous and detailed resource available on market risk analysis. Written as a series of four interlinked volumes each title is self-contained, although numerous cross-references to other volumes enable readers to obtain further background knowledge and information about financial applications."Volume I: Quantitative Methods in Finance" covers the essential mathematical and financial background for subsequent volumes. Although many readers will already be familiar with this material, few competing texts contain such a complete and pedagogical exposition of all the basic quantitative concepts required for market risk analysis. There are six comprehensive chapters covering all the calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, numerical methods and portfolio mathematics that are necessary for market risk analysis. This is an ideal background text for a Masters course in finance."Volume II: Practical Financial Econometrics" provides a detailed understanding of financial econometrics, with applications to asset pricing and fund management as well as to market risk analysis.It covers equity factor models, including a detailed analysis of the Barra model and tracking error, principal component analysis, volatility and correlation, GARCH, cointegration, copulas, Markov switching, quantile regression, discrete choice models, non-linear regression, forecasting and model evaluation.

"Volume III: Pricing, Hedging and Trading Financial Instruments" has five very long chapters on the pricing, hedging and trading of bonds and swaps, futures and forwards, options and volatility as well detailed descriptions of mapping portfolios of these financial instruments to their risk factors. There are numerous examples, all coded in interactive Excel spreadsheets, including many pricing formulae for exotic options but excluding the calibration of stochastic volatility models, for which Matlab code is provided. The chapters on options and volatility together constitute 50 per cent of the book, the slightly longer chapter on volatility concentrating on the dynamic properties the two volatility surfaces the implied and the local volatility surfaces that accompany an option pricing model, with particular reference to hedging."Volume IV: Value at Risk Models" builds on the three previous volumes to provide by far the most comprehensive and detailed treatment of market VaR models that is currently available in any textbook.

The exposition starts at an elementary level but, as in all the other volumes, the pedagogical approach accompanied by numerous interactive Excel spreadsheets allows readers to experience the application of parametric linear, historical simulation and Monte Carlo VaR models to increasingly complex portfolios. Starting with simple positions, after a few chapters we apply value-at-risk models to interest rate sensitive portfolios, large international securities portfolios, commodity futures, path dependent options and much else. This rigorous treatment includes many new results and applications to regulatory and economic capital allocation, measurement of VaR model risk and stress testing.

From the Back Cover

Market Risk Analysis is a series of four interlinked volumes written by one of the most highly acclaimed authors in the field. Carol Alexander′s pedagogical approach takes readers from basics to the most advanced analysis, each step being illustrated by relevant and practical examples. The understanding of virtually every concept or formula is consolidated with a practical, numerical example or a longer, empirical case study. Nearly all are contained in interactive Excel spreadsheets on accompanying CD–ROMs, and where this is not possible, illustrative Matlab or EView code is provided.

A new type of practical resource from which to gain real understanding

Volume I: Quantitative Methods in Finance covers the essential mathematical and financial background for the subsequent volumes. Although many readers will already be familiar with this material, few competing texts contain such a complete and pedagogical exposition of all the basic quantitative concepts required for market risk analysis. There are six comprehensive chapters covering all the calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, numerical methods and portfolio mathematics that are necessary for market risk analysis. This is an ideal background text for a Masters course in finance.

Volume II: Practical Financial Econometrics provides a detailed understanding of financial econometrics, with applications to asset pricing and fund management as well as to market risk analysis. It covers equity factor models, including a detailed analysis of the Barra model and tracking error, principal component analysis, volatility and correlation, GARCH, Cointegration, copulas, Markov switching, quantile regression, discrete choice models, non–linear regression, forecasting and model evaluation.

Volume III: Pricing, Hedging and Trading Financial Instruments has five very long chapters on the pricing, hedging and trading of bonds and swaps, futures and forwards, options and volatility as well as detailed descriptions of mapping portfolios of these financial instruments to their risk factors. There are numerous examples, all coded in interactive Excel spreadsheets, including many pricing formulae for exotic options but excluding the calibration of stochastic volatility models, for which MATLAB code is provided. The chapters on options and volatility together constitute 50% of the book, the slightly longer chapter on volatility concentrating on the dynamic properties the two volatility surfaces (the implied and the local volatility surfaces) that accompany an option pricing model, with particular reference to hedging.

Volume IV: Value–at–Risk Models builds on the three previous volumes to provide by far the most comprehensive and detailed treatment of market VaR models that is currently available in any textbook. The exposition starts at an elementary level but, as in all the other volumes, the pedagogical approach accompanied by numerous interactive Excel spreadsheets allows readers to experience the application of parametric linear, historical simulation and Monte Carlo VaR models to increasingly complex portfolios. Starting with simple positions, in the following chapters we apply value–at–risk models to interest rate sensitive portfolios, large international securities portfolios, commodity futures, path dependent options and much else. This rigorous treatment includes many new results as well as numerous applications to regulatory and economic capital allocation, measurement of VaR model risk and stress testing.

Carol Alexander′s knowledge of the industry provides unique insight to the relevant practical challenges facing market risk analysts working in the profession. Each title is self–contained, but there are numerous cross–references to the other volumes. Having taken five years to prepare, there are few other texts that match the rigour and quality of these. The four volumes together provide sufficient material for one or two years of full–time study.

Alexander has developed a new concept in publishing, allowing course tutors to adopt all the contents of the CD–ROMs including approximately 300 numerical and empirical examples, 400 graphs and figures and 30 case studies for their own teaching purposes.
