An essential reference dedicated to a wide array of financial models, issues in financial modeling, and mathematical and statistical tools for financial modeling. 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 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 covers both established and cutting-edge models and discusses their real-world applications. Edited by Frank Fabozzi, it includes contributions from global financial experts as well as academics with extensive consulting experience in this field. Organized alphabetically by category, touching on everything from asset pricing and bond valuation models to trading cost models and volatility, it provides readers with a balanced understanding of today's dynamic world of financial modeling. Emphasizes both technical and implementation issues, providing researchers, educators, students, and practitioners with the necessary background to deal with issues related to financial modeling. Financial models have become increasingly commonplace, as well as complex. They are essential in a wide range of financial endeavors, and this resource will help put them in perspective.
