Reviews

"Stephen Satchell's Forecasting Expected Returns in the Financial Markets is a long-awaited contribution to portfolio engineering. It blends very neat summaries of existing methods ranging from Bayesian techniques to robust or rank sorted optimizations with highly original cutting edge techniques. All contributions are written by outstanding and well-known individuals. I highly recommend this book. Reading it will come at no risk but with great return."
