Based on Hull’s Options, Futures and Other Derivatives, one of the best-selling books on Wall Street, this book presents an accessible overview of the topic without the use of calculus. Packed with numerical samples and accounts of real-life situations, the Fifth Edition effectively guides readers through the material while providing them with a host of tangible examples.
One cannot fully understand the quantitative aspects of risk management without having this book in your reference library. It’s thorough, easy to read and has all the necessary mathematics for reproduce the risk measures, pricing and valuation for most exchange traded securities out there. I fails only in the introduction to cover the requisite history of risk management but that’s not so important for the work. I particuarly like the Merton model descriptions for pricing corporate bonds, the options pricing methods because it makes binomial pricing for options really easy to program yourself. This is one book you need in your library and also one you must read too.
