The need for serious coverage of financial modeling has never been greater, especially with the size, diversity, and efficiency of modern capital markets. With this in mind, the Encyclopedia of Financial Models, 3 Volume Set has been created to help a broad spectrum of individuals—ranging from finance professionals to academics and students—understand financial modeling and make use of the various models currently available.

Incorporating timely research and in-depth analysis, the Encyclopedia of Financial Models is an informative 3-volume set that covers both established and cutting-edge models and discusses their real-world applications.

Edited by Frank Fabozzi, Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School, this set includes contributions from global financial experts as well as academics with extensive consulting experience in this field.

Organized alphabetically by category, this reliable resource consists of three separate volumes and 127 entries—touching on everything from asset pricing and bond valuation models to trading cost models and volatility—and provides readers with a balanced understanding of today's dynamic world of financial modeling.

Volume 1 contains coverage of Asset Allocation, Asset Pricing Models, Bayesian Analysis and Financial Modeling Applications, Bond Valuation, Credit Risk Modeling, and Derivatives Valuation.

Volume 2 explores Equity Models and Valuation, Factor Models for Portfolio Construction, Financial Econometrics, Financial Modeling Principles, Financial Statements Analysis, Finite Mathematics for Financial Modeling, and Model Risk and Selection.

Volume 3 addresses Mortgage-Backed Securities Analysis and Valuation, Operational Risk, Optimization Tools, Probability Theory, Risk Measures, Software for Financial Modeling, Stochastic Processes and Tools, Term Structure Modeling, Trading Cost Models, and Volatility.

Financial models have become increasingly commonplace, as well as complex. They are essential in a wide range of financial endeavors, and this 3-volume set will help put them in perspective:
  • Contains coverage of the fundamentals and advances in financial modeling and provides the mathematical and statistical techniques needed to develop and test financial models.

  • Emphasizes both technical and implementation issues, providing researchers, educators, students, and practitioners with the necessary background to deal with issues related to financial modeling.
