JON DANIELSSON FINANCIAL RISK FORECASTING PDF

Written by renowned risk expert Jon Danielsson, the book begins with an introduction to financial markets and market prices, volatility clusters, fat tails and nonlinear dependence. It then goes on to present volatility forecasting with both univatiate and multivatiate methods, discussing the various methods used by industry, with a special focus on the GARCH family of models. The evaluation of the quality of forecasts is discussed in detail. Next, the main concepts in risk and models to forecast risk are discussed, especially volatility, value-at-risk and expected shortfall.

Written by renowned risk expert Jon Danielsson, the book begins with an introduction to financial markets and market prices, volatility clusters, fat tails and nonlinear dependence. It then goes on to present volatility forecasting with both univatiate and multivatiate methods, discussing the various methods used by industry, with a special focus on the GARCH family of models. The evaluation of the quality of forecasts is discussed in detail. Next, the main concepts in risk and models to forecast risk are discussed, especially volatility, value-at-risk and expected shortfall.

The focus is both on risk in basic assets such as stocks and foreign exchange, but also calculations of risk in bonds and options, with analytical methods such as delta-normal VaR and duration-normal VaR and Monte Carlo simulation. The book then moves on to the evaluation of risk models with methods like backtesting, followed by a discussion on stress testing. The book concludes by focussing on the forecasting of risk in very large and uncommon events with extreme value theory and considering the underlying assumptions behind almost every risk model in practical use — that risk is exogenous — and what happens when those assumptions are violated.

Every method presented brings together theoretical discussion and derivation of key equations and a discussion of issues in practical implementation.

Each method is implemented in both MATLAB and R, two of the most commonly used mathematical programming languages for risk forecasting with which the reader can implement the models illustrated in the book.

The book includes four appendices. The first introduces basic concepts in statistics and financial time series referred to throughout the book. And the final looks at the concept of maximum likelihood, especially issues in implementation and testing. The book is accompanied by a website - www. Jon Danielsson. Financial Risk Forecasting is a complete introduction to practical quantitative risk management, with a focus on market risk.

Derived from the authors teaching notes and years spent training practitioners in risk management techniques, it brings together the three key disciplines of finance, statistics and modeling programming , to provide a thorough grounding in risk management techniques. His research interests include financial stability, extreme market movements, risk, market liquidity and financial crisis.

He has published extensively in both academic and practitioner journals, has consulted with a variety of private sector and public institutions, frequently gives executive education courses and has presented his work in a number of universities and institutions.

In addition, he has been a frequent commentator of issues in financial markets in the media, appearing on CNN, the BBC, and many other TV and radio stations, with comments and op-ed pieces in newspapers like the Financial Times.

Guest post to R-bloggers by Dr Kris Boudt. R has always been my favorite language to forecast financial risk in my research and consulting. But, I have been reluctant to use it in my lectures on financial risk. It is certainly not the absence of appropriate R packages that refrained me.
