Kurzbeschreibung

Introduces a powerful new approach to financial risk modelingwith proven strategies for its real-world applications
The 2008 credit crisis did much to debunk the much touted powersof Value at Risk (VaR) as a risk metric. Unlike most authors on VaRwho focus on what it can do, in this book the author looks at whatit cannot. In clear, accessible prose, finance practitioners, MaxWong, describes the VaR measure and what it was meant to do, thenexplores its various failures in the real world of crisis riskmanagement. More importantly, he lays out a revolutionary newmethod of measuring risks, Bubble Value at Risk, that iscountercyclical and offers a well-tested buffer against marketcrashes.

* Makes a strong case that analysts and risk managers need tounlearn our existing "science" of risk measurement and discovermore robust approaches to calculating risk capital
* Illustrates every key concept or formula with an abundance ofpractical, numerical examples, most of them provided in interactiveExcel spreadsheets
* Features numerous real-world applications, throughout, based onthe author's firsthand experience as a veteran financial riskanalyst
