A fascinating book that very comprehensibly covers the evolution of risk management. Very interesting perspective, accessible to all-from experienced market practitioners to interested beginners."-Jonathan P. Moulds, Bank of America"While others build straw men only to tear them down, Rebonato stands on the intellectual foundations of his profession to both articulate its weaknesses and suggest a plan for material advancement. This he does with respect, precision, and A fascinating book that very comprehensibly covers the evolution of risk management. Very interesting perspective, accessible to all-from experienced market practitioners to interested beginners."-Jonathan P. Moulds, Bank of America"While others build straw men only to tear them down, Rebonato stands on the intellectual foundations of his profession to both articulate its weaknesses and suggest a plan for material advancement. This he does with respect, precision, and humor, making Plight of the Fortune Tellers a welcome oasis in the desert of dry risk management texts."-David Shimko, Towers Perrin"Riccardo Rebonato provides a refreshingly clear and skeptical analysis of the limitations of quantitative risk management, the navet of too many decimal places, and the sloppy ways in which people talk about probability."-Emanuel Derman, Columbia University, head of risk at Prisma Capital Partners, and author of My Life as a Quant: Reflections on Physics and Finance"This is a unique book: a treatise on risk management with no equations! Since equations are frequently substituted for thought in this area, the book is long overdue. Riccardo Rebonato is one of the leading technical writers in this area, and now brings his experience to bear on the elephant in the room of risk management: do the equations do what their advocates claim? All will benefit from Rebonato's insights, including his proposals for how to reform risk management."-Ian Cooper, London Business School"In this elegant and controversial book, the author discusses and rejects the current paradigm of quantitative risk management. Rather than the traditional frequentist methods, he advocates using probabilities-as-degree-of-belief and probabilities-as-revealed-by-actions as better approaches to decision making under financial uncertainty.

Today's top financial professionals have come to rely on ever-more sophisticated mathematics in their attempts to come to grips with financial risk. But this excessive reliance on quantitative precision is misleading--and puts everyone at risk. In Plight of the Fortune Tellers, Riccardo Rebonato forcefully argues that we must restore genuine decision making to our financial planning. Presenting a financial model that uses probability, experimental psychology, and decision theory, Rebonato challe..., Today's top financial professionals have come to rely on ever-more sophisticated mathematics in their attempts to come to grips with financial risk. But this excessive reliance on quantitative precision is misleading--and puts everyone at risk. In Plight of the Fortune Tellers, Riccardo Rebonato forcefully argues that we must restore genuine decision making to our financial planning. Presenting a financial model that uses probability, experimental psychology, and decision theory, Rebonato challenges us to rethink the standard wisdom about risk management. He offers a radical yet surprisingly commonsense solution: managing risk comes down to real people making decisions under uncertainty. Plight of the Fortune Tellers is a must-read for anyone concerned about how today's financial markets are run. In a new preface, Rebonato explains how the ideas presented in this book fit into the context of the global financial crisis that followed its original publication. He argues that risk managers are still stuck in a probabilistic rut, and need to engage with the structural causes of real events.Taal: Engels; Formaat: ePub met kopieerbeveiliging (DRM) van Adobe; Bestandsgrootte: 1.21 MB; Kopieerrechten: Het kopiëren van (delen van) de pagina's is niet toegestaan ; Printrechten: Het printen van de pagina's is niet toegestaan; Voorleesfunctie: De voorleesfunctie is uitgeschakeld; Geschikt voor: Alle e-readers geschikt voor ebooks in ePub formaat.
