"Christoffersen offers a very readable, one-of-a-kind introduction to modern risk management and associated techniques for volatility and correlation modeling. The book strikes an excellent balance between mathematical rigor and intuition, and I would highly recommend it to any student or finance practitioner interested in learning about the latest and most important new developments in the field. This is a winner." --Tim Bollerslev, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, U.S.A. "A very useful risk management book, emphasizing the statistical modeling of market risk" --Philippe Jorion, University of California, Irvine, U.S.A. "This is a book I and dozens of others wanted to write, and a book everyone in financial risk management will want to read. It is rigorous yet immensely practical, unifying many threads from the past and pointing the way toward the future -- an instant classic." --Francis X. Diebold, WP Carey Professor of Economics, Professor of Finance and Statistics, Department of Economics, University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
