Beginning with the introduction of "value" and "growth" stocks in the late 1930s, expanding to add the concept of "small cap" stocks in the early 1980s, and progressing to the mathematical formalization of Nobel Laureate William Sharpe in the late 1980s, the methodology of equity style is now an integral part of U.S. and non–U.S. equity analysis and portfolio management.

Continuing the tradition of the first and second editions, T. Daniel Coggin and Frank J. Fabozzi have brought together thirty–five leading experts from academia and the investment profession to give you the most comprehensive and up–to–date coverage of the key issues in this rapidly growing field. In one concise volume, you will learn the basics of equity style management and its latest developments.

This updated edition presents the rationale behind equity style management, and reveals strategies that can be used to manage risk and improve returns. The Handbook of Equity Style Management, Third Edition includes new chapters on:

  • The major approaches to defining, managing, and assessing equity style

  • The behavioral aspects of equity style
  • Tactical equity style management
  • The impact of the "technology bubble" on equity style investing
