Research and Markets: Introducing A Mathematical Book That Is Essential Reading for Quants and People Working Within the Area of Investment: Multi-Moment Asset Allocation and Pricing Models

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c41678) has announced the addition of Multi-moment Asset Allocation and Pricing Models to their offering.

The book presents the theories and development of multi-moment asset allocation and pricing models in a single volume, collecting in unified framework theoretical results and applications previously scattered across financial literature. The explosion of interest for this area can be explained by the fast-growing concerns of investors with extreme risks and will be essential reading for practitioners. It is a high-level, mathematical book and will be essential reading for quants and people working within the area of investment with a good grasp of the theory behind valuing assets and the relationship between risk and return. Contributions from: Chris Adcock - Professor of Financial Econometrics at the University of Sheffield, Gustavo de Athayde - Senior Quantitative Manager at the Banco Itau, Giovanni Barone-Adesi - Professor of finance theory at USI in Lugano (Switzerland), Eric Jondeau - Professor of Finance at HEC-Lausanne, Patrice Poncet - Professor of Business Administration at the University of Paris-1 (Pantheon-Sorbonne) and a Professor of Finance at the ESSEC Business School, Michael Rockinger - Professor of finance at HEC Lausanne (FAME), and a former scientific consultant at the Banque de France, Giovanni Urga - Professor of Finance and Econometrics at the Cass Business School.
