Advances in Financial Risk Management presents the latest research on measuring, managing and pricing financial risk. It provides an expansive view of the latest techniques available to academics and practitioners in three critical areas: corporate, financial and portfolio risk management. It brings together both empirical and theoretical perspectives on issues that remain paramount despite financial market volatility abating in recent years.

Looking ahead, the prospects for the financial services industry are for more regulatory oversight and attention being paid to the modeling and measuring of financial risk. This volume contributes to this ongoing debate and provides valuable insights into the issues and appropriate practice of financial risk management.

Advances in Financial Risk Management is essential reading for anyone interested in better understanding the latest developments in risk management in the post-Global Financial Crisis (GFC) environment.
