Overview

Prebuilt Code for Modeling and Pricing Today’s Complex Derivatives

Justin London shows how to implement pricing algorithms for a wide variety of complex derivatives, including rapidly emerging instruments covered in no other book. Utilizing actual Bloomberg data, London covers credit derivatives, CDOs, mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, fixed-income securities, and today’s increasingly important weather, power, and energy derivatives. His robust models are designed for both ease of use and ease of adaptation, and may be downloaded by the book’s purchasers from a secured Web site.

Modeling Derivatives Applications in Matlab, C++, and Excel will be indispensable to sell-side professionals who model derivatives; buy-side professionals who must understand the derivatives offered to them; experienced quants; developers at Wall Street firms; and any financial engineering practitioner or student entering the derivatives field for the first time.

  • Presents broader coverage and more models than any competitive book Covers everything from swaps to interest rate models, mortgage- and asset-backed securities to the HJM model
  • Includes code for all three leading derivatives development platforms The only book to present models for Matlab, C++, and Excel
  • Addresses the fastest-growing areas of derivatives development Includes models for weather, power, and energy derivatives, CDOs, and more
  • Contains extensive real-world examples.

The entire book utilizes Matlab, C++, and Excel. Users need Matlab installed, Visual C++, and Excel. In addition, some examples using Matlab toolkits are used: Chapter 1 makes use of the Fixed-Income Toolkit. Appendix A makes use of the Financial Derivatives Toolkit and Matlab Excel Link. These toolkits do not come with the book, but can be obtained from Mathworks.
