Elements of Financial Risk Management
Peter F. Christoffersen
Publication date: 2003
Publisher: Academic Press
Total Quantity of pages: 230

Value-at-Risk has emerged as the standard tool for measuring and reporting financial market risk. Currently, more than eighty commercial vendors offer enterprise or trading risk management systems that provide VAR-like measures. Risk managers are therefore often left with the daunting task of having to choose from this plethora of risk measures.

While basic VAR textbooks describe average VAR situations, the vast majority of these situations are abnormal. Elements of Financial Risk Management focuses on implementation, especially recent techniques which facilitate "bridging the gap" between standard textbooks on risk and real-life risk management systems. This book will appeal to practitioners in the financial services and investment industries, as well as graduate students and advanced undergraduates who want exposure to these techniques.
