This book provides the most comprehensive treatment of the theoretical concepts and modelling techniques of quantitative risk management. Whether you are a financial risk analyst, actuary, regulator or student of quantitative finance, Quantitative Risk Management gives you the practical tools you need to solve real-world problems.

Describing the latest advances in the field, Quantitative Risk Management covers the methods for market, credit and operational risk modelling. It places standard industry approaches on a more formal footing and explores key concepts such as loss distributions, risk measures and risk aggregation and allocation principles. The book's methodology draws on diverse quantitative disciplines, from mathematical finance and statistics to econometrics and actuarial mathematics. A primary theme throughout is the need to satisfactorily address extreme outcomes and the dependence of key risk drivers. Proven in the classroom, the book also covers advanced topics like credit derivatives.

  • Fully revised and expanded to reflect developments in the field since the financial crisis
  • Features shorter chapters to facilitate teaching and learning
  • Provides enhanced coverage of Solvency II and insurance risk management and extended treatment of credit risk, including counterparty credit risk and CDO pricing
  • Includes a new chapter on market risk and new material on risk measures and risk aggregation

From the Back Cover:

Praise for the previous edition: "McNeil, Frey, and Embrechts present a wide-ranging yet remarkably clear and coherent introduction to the modelling of financial risk. Unlike most finance texts, where the focus is on pricing individual instruments, the primary focus in this book is the statistical behavior of portfolios of risky instruments, which is, after all, the primary concern of risk management. This ought to be a core text in every risk manager's training, and a useful reference for experienced professionals."--Michael Gordy

Praise for the previous edition: "There is no book that provides the type of rigorous and detailed coverage of risk management topics that this book does. This could become the book on quantitative risk management."--Riccardo Rebonato, Royal Bank of Scotland, author of Modern Pricing of Interest-Rate Derivatives
