Friday, October 8, 2010

Quantitative finance and risk management are a combination of economics, accounting, statistics, econometrics, mathematics, stochastic process, and computer science and technology.

The "Handbook of Quantitative Finance and Risk Management," published by RBS Professor of Finance and Economics Cheng-Few Lee with Alice C. Lee and John Lee, is the most comprehensive handbook in quantitative finance and risk management, which integrates theory, methodology, and application. Because of the importance of quantitative finance and risk management in the finance industry, it has become one of the most popular subjects in business school and departments of mathematics, operation research, and statistics. In addition, the finance industry has many job opportunities for people with good training in quantitative finance and risk management. Thus, a handbook should have a broad audience and be of interest to academics, educators, students, and practitioners.

Based upon our years of experience in industry, teaching, research, textbook writing, and journal editing on the subject of quantitative finance and risk management, this handbook will review, discuss, and integrate theoretical, methodological and practical issues of quantitative finance and risk management.

Professor Lee’s expertise is in: Corporate Finance, Security Analysis, Portfolio Management, Options and Futures, Risk Management. With world-class faculty like Professor Lee, Rutgers Business School – Newark and New Brunswick delivers the business, science, and technology credentials demanded by global employers.

The RBS community congratulates Professor Lee on this new handbook!
