Visual Quantitative Finance


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This book makes quantitative finance (almost) easy! Its new visual approach makes quantitative finance accessible to a broad audience, including those without strong backgrounds in math or finance. Michael Lovelady introduces a simplified but powerful technique for calculating profit probabilities and graphically representing the outcomes. Lovelady's "pictures" highlight key characteristics of structured securities such as the increased likelihood of profits, the level of virtual dividends being generated, and market risk exposures. After explaining his visual approach, he applies it to one of today's hottest investing trends: lower-volatility, higher-income strategies. Because of today's intense interest in alternative investments and structured securities, this book reviews their unique advantages to investors, managers and advisors of retail and institutional portfolios. Visual Quantitative Finance focuses on key topics directly related to the design, pricing and communication of structured securities, including stochastic price projections and the framework underlying options pricing formulas. The key is Lovelady's explicit use of probabilities in a spreadsheet format. By working directly with the underlying assumptions, he transforms the Black-Scholes framework into five columns of a simple Excel spreadsheet, with no complicated formulas -- making structured securities far more intuitive to design, evaluate and manage. For all investors, students, and financial professionals who are interested in quantitative finance, risk measurement, options pricing, structured securities, or financial model building - and for everyone who needs to explain these topics to someone else. For those with quantitative backgrounds, this guide offers powerful new tools for design and risk management, simplifying the design and evaluation of innovative instruments. For everyone else, Lovelady makes the subject comprehensible for the first time.

Behavioral Finance The Second Generation


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Behavioral finance presented in this book is the second-generation of behavioral finance. The first generation, starting in the early 1980s, largely accepted standard finance’s notion of people’s wants as “rational” wants—restricted to the utilitarian benefits of high returns and low risk. That first generation commonly described people as “irrational”—succumbing to cognitive and emotional errors and misled on their way to their rational wants. The second generation describes people as normal. It begins by acknowledging the full range of people’s normal wants and their benefits—utilitarian, expressive, and emotional—distinguishes normal wants from errors, and offers guidance on using shortcuts and avoiding errors on the way to satisfying normal wants. People’s normal wants include financial security, nurturing children and families, gaining high social status, and staying true to values. People’s normal wants, even more than their cognitive and emotional shortcuts and errors, underlie answers to important questions of finance, including saving and spending, portfolio construction, asset pricing, and market efficiency.

Business And Financial Models


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A good business model should describe how an organization creates and delivers value, meaning that financial modelling is a vital tool for business strategy, allowing hypotheses and scenarios to be translated into numbers. It enables a company to experiment with different ideas and scenarios in a safe, low-risk environment, to consider what it is aiming to achieve, and to prioritize accordingly. Business and Financial Models provides an accessible introduction to these essential strategic practices, with guidance on using Microsoft Excel for projection and analysis. The book takes you through the process of building your model from the initial phase of formulating questions through modelling cash flow, budgets, investment appraisal and 'dashboard' tools for monitoring performance. Ideal for both small and large companies, Business and Financial Models also includes coverage of new visual thinking techniques, like Structured Visual Thinking, and how these can be incorporated into conventional business modelling.

Quantitative Finance


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Quantitative Finance: An Object-Oriented Approach in C++ provides readers with a foundation in the key methods and models of quantitative finance. Keeping the material as self-contained as possible, the author introduces computational finance with a focus on practical implementation in C++. Through an approach based on C++ classes and templates, the text highlights the basic principles common to various methods and models while the algorithmic implementation guides readers to a more thorough, hands-on understanding. By moving beyond a purely theoretical treatment to the actual implementation of the models using C++, readers greatly enhance their career opportunities in the field. The book also helps readers implement models in a trading or research environment. It presents recipes and extensible code building blocks for some of the most widespread methods in risk management and option pricing. Web Resource The author’s website provides fully functional C++ code, including additional C++ source files and examples. Although the code is used to illustrate concepts (not as a finished software product), it nevertheless compiles, runs, and deals with full, rather than toy, problems.

Visual Finance


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Visual Finance is a powerful, simple tool that you can learn in a couple of hours, and easily apply to real life. Over the past five years, this model has been used in thousands of "finance for non-financial managers" training sessions in more than 30 countries. Now for the first time, it has been finally released in a paperback format. Accounting is perceived as being tedious, complicated and too theoretical. Non-financial managers are less than enthusiastic about accounting. One of the possible reasons might be the way business schools teach it. In a recent study only 46% of respondents have average or higher financial literacy and could understand financial statements. Stop avoiding financial topics during team meetings. Save your company from making costly mistakes and begin to maximize on all the valuable opportunities.
