The 2007-9 crisis highlighted the dangers of dependence on risk quantification and the importance of taking measurement uncertainty into account. Today, risk managers recognise the need to rethink the way they measure and control risk, and how their findings inform decision-making. Rethinking Risk Measurement and Reporting 2 speaks to these needs, providing the techniques and tools for a more effective risk management framework.

Model uncertainty must be accepted as an intrinsic part of risk measurement. This insight is the starting point for Rethinking Risk Measurement and Reporting, which identifies how uncertainty of risk figures can be better understood and expressed and how expert judgement can be absorbed into the fabric of modern risk management.

Edited by Klaus Böcker and published in two volumes, Rethinking Risk Measurement and Reporting, will raise the reader’s awareness of model and parameter uncertainty when using mathematical models in financial risk management.

This second volume is divided into three sections and discusses a broad spectrum of financial applications, with practical examples, by risk type. Volume II builds on the foundations READ MORE >
