Developed over 20 years of teaching academic courses, the Handbook of Financial Risk Management can be divided into two main parts: risk management in the financial sector; and a discussion of the mathematical and statistical tools used in risk management.

This comprehensive text offers readers the chance to develop a sound understanding of financial products and the mathematical models that drive them, exploring in detail where the risks are and how to manage them.

Key Features:

  • Written by an author with both theoretical and applied experience
  • Ideal resource for students pursuing a master’s degree in finance who want to learn risk management
  • Comprehensive coverage of the key topics in financial risk management
  • Contains 114 exercises, with solutions provided online at www.crcpress.com/9781138501874


Handbook of Financial Risk Management has the exceptional (and rare!) quality of bridging the practitioner-academic divide. Part 1 covers all the important practical applications for management and Part 2 provides the essential mathematical and statistical knowledge for modern risk analysts. Thierry’s expertise puts him in a unique position to author such a book and I am confident that it will be a standard reference in the field.

Carol Alexander, Professor of Finance, University of Sussex and Visiting Professor, Peking University PHBS Business School
