Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The combination of theoretical papers and practical discussions of actual asset/liability management ('ALM') models make for an appealing wealth of inforamtion bound in one volume. Unlike many treatments of ALM modeling problems —especially in the practitioner literature—this book has the strength of tackling a fairly technical in broad manner. The book should have great appeal to those whose responsibility it is to solve ALM modeling problems. In addition, it is an excellent introduction for those outside the field to both the strategic and the technical issues facing ALM modelers today." Financial Engineering News
