Summary: Financial risk management as a field of study and practice continues to rapidly evolve. But despite the long list of books written about this subject, most focus mainly on statistical risk measurement techniques. Financial Risk Management: A Practitioner's Guide to Managing Market and Credit Risk breaks this mold by providing a comprehensive overview of the entire field of risk management.Steve Allen, Managing Director in charge of risk methodology at JPMorgan Chase, offers an inside

Focusing on the management of those risks that can be successfully quantified, Allen explores real-world issues such as proper mark-to-market valuation of trading positions and determination of needed reserves against valuation uncertainty, the structuring of limits to control risk taking, and a review of mathematical models and how they can contribute to risk control.Financial Risk Management is divided into three equally informative parts, each filled with in-depth insights and valuable advice gleaned from years of risk management experience.
