Название: Plight of the Fortune Tellers: Why We Need to Manage Financial Risk Differently
Автор: Rebonato R.
"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 naïveté 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. General readers as well as risk-management professionals, students, and academics will find this book exciting and illuminating."—Alexander Lipton, managing director, global head of credit analytics, Merrill Lynch International"An extremely timely book that will no doubt cause a stir. It is a reality check that carries great authority because of the author's experience and position in the industry and his knowledge of both the business end and the technical side. This is a well-written, entertaining book that will generate a lot of debate in the financial industry about the future of quantitative risk management."—Alexander J. McNeil, coauthor of Quantitative Risk Management"Very engaging and in places quite provocative. This book will be a wake-up call for the financial risk management industry. Certainly a good read."—Lane Hughston, King's College London
