Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This bookshows in a comprehensive way the influences and impacts ofpastcrises. After guiding the reader through several investment styles and asset classes, the editors can present a deep comparisonof governmental regulation on the one side and markets' tendencies toward self-regulation on the other. Their analytics identify leading indicators of future crises.A must-read for every financial market participant."

—Christoph D. Kauter, Trigon Equity Partners

"In both our personal and professional lives, crises stimulate serious soul searching. The Global Financial Crisis was bound to have this effect on financial risk management. Rethinking Valuation and Pricing Models: Lessons Learned from the Crisis represents a major contribution to the collective soul searching currently under way in the world of quantitative finance. Particular attention is paid to the need for improved treatment of "higher order risks" such as basis risk, counterparty default risk, the instability of implied correlations and the shifting credit quality inherent in many interest rate indices. Also addressed is the realization that some risks are different in kind from those reflected in daily fluctuations of prices and rates (essentially the difference between risk and uncertainty in the Frank Knight sense). While not a volume for the quantitatively faint of heart, this book represents a significant contribution to the continuing reassessment of what we know about risk and how to quantify it."

—David M. Rowe, President of David M. Rowe Risk Advisory
