An updated guide to risk management for financial firms post crisis. Written by an experienced risk manager and quantitative analyst, the book updates the theories and tools used to assess, measure, and monitor risk with their applications. The book then presents a guide map for tactical and strategic decision-making to control risk and capitalize on opportunities. Risk management, like portfolio management, must become a core firm competency. Quantitative Risk Measurement serves as an updated tutorial that addresses the current state of risk management and presents improvements in the practice and implementation. From risk measures, probability, and regulatory issues to a typology of financial institution riks and portfolio risk analytics and reporting, Coleman provides the models, tools, and techniques firms need to fully integrate the best in risk management practices. Includes interactive graphs, and portfolio risk and analytics computer code, documentation, and risk-reporting.
