Investment Risk Management (The Wiley Finance Series)

Buy
Risk has two sides: underestimating it harms the investor, while overestimating it prevents the implementation of bold business projects. This book explains, from the point of view of the practitioner, the analysis of investment risk - a proper account of adequate risk management strategies - and offers an objective and readable account of the most common investment risk management procedures. It will not be highly mathematical, although mathematical formulae and technical graphs will be used where necessary, and will not rely on excessive technical jargon.

The author also covers guidelines of regulatory institutions that protect the market and the investor: Bank of International Settlements, US SEC and UK FSA.

"Risk is an everyday hazard facing everyone, but investors in particular. However different 9/11 and Enron may be, their consequences for businesses around the globe can hardly be overestimated. Risks can usually be mitigated, but not eliminated completely. The art of investing is to hover between risk and return. Risk management is a core discipline for successful investors.

In his new book Yen Yee Chong helps investors to understand the ins and outs of risk management and its methodologies. He presents a large number of case studies that contribute to investors' insights in what is going on in practice.

One of the book's interesting dimensions is that it explains the concept of organic risk management (ORM) focusing on integrating operational risk from different areas. This makes it a must for managers, since ORM attempts to examine and conduct damage limitation to stop one infected part hurting the whole corporate entity."
—Prof. Dr. M. Peter van der Hoek, editor of Public Finance and Management, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, Netherlands, and Academy of Economic Studies, Bucharest, Romania
