It would not be exaggerating to argue that financial risk analysis is one of the most important and most difficult components of project appraisal. Such analysis is especially important because the financial viability of a project may be critical for its long-term sustainability and survivability. Its particular difficulty is due to the inherent challenge of pricing risk with market
Mathematical finance and financial engineering have been rapidly expanding fields of science over the past three decades. The main reason behind this phenomenon has been the success of sophisticated quantitative methodologies in helping professionals to manage financial risks. The newly developed credit derivatives industry has grown around the need to handle credit risk, which is one of the fundamental factors of financial risk. In recent years, we have witnessed a tremendous acceleration in research efforts aimed at better apprehending, modeling and hedging of this kind of risk

World Map Financial Derivatives
Financial derivatives are financial instruments that are linked to a specific financial instrument or indicator or commodity, and through which specific financial risks can be traded in financial markets in their own right. Transactions in financial derivatives should be treated as separate transactions rather than as integral parts of the value of underlying transactions to which they may be linked. The value of a financial derivative derives from the price of an underlying item, such as an asset or index.
Financial and insurance markets always operate under various types of uncertainties
that can affect nancial positions of companies and individuals. In nancial and
insurance theories these uncertainties are usually referred to as risks. Given certain
states of the market, and the economy in general, one can talk about risk exposure.
Any economic activities of individuals, companies and public establishments aiming
for wealth accumulation assume studying risk exposure. The sequence of the corresponding
actions over some period of time forms the process of risk management.
The focus in this book is on the study of market risk from a quantitative point of view.
The emphasis is on presenting commonly used state-of-the-art quantitative techniques
used in finance for the management of market risk and demonstrate their use employing
the principal two mathematical programming languages, R and Matlab. All the code

The calm before the storm? That question dominated the stage at the
seventh annual conference on emerging markets finance, cosponsored
by the World Bank and the Brookings Institution and held at Brookings in
late April 2005.
At the time of the conference, it had been a little less than eight years since
the onset of the Asian financial crisis, an event that had depression-like effects
throughout much of Asia and, for a time, seemed to threaten global economic
Risk is the fundamental element that influences financial behavior. In its absence, the financial
system necessary for efficient allocations of resources would be vastly simplified. In that world, only
a few institutions and financial instruments would be needed, and the practice of finance would
require relatively elementary analytical tools. But, of course, in the real world, risk is ubiquitous.
Much of the structure of the financial system we see serves the function of the efficient distribution
Modern western societies have a paradoxical relationship with risks. On the
one hand, there is the utopian quest for a zero-risk society. On the other
hand, human activities may increase risks of all kinds, from collaterals of new
technologies to global impacts on the planet. The characteristic multiplication
of major risks in modern society and its reﬂexive impact on its development
is at the core of the concept of the “Risk Society”
Antonio’s first big mistake in The Merchant of Venice was to bet his
whole fortune on a fleet of ships; his second was to borrow 3,000
ducats from a single source. The first rule of risk management is to identify
your risk. The second is to diversify it. Antonio broke the second
rule, and his creditor Shylock flunked the first. He found he could not
take his pound of Antonio’s flesh without shedding “one drop of Christian
blood”: blood had not been specified as part of the bargain.
We are living in a risky world, and it is getting riskier and riskier. As one of my
fundamental claims that have been delivered to various audience including scho-lars, practitioners and government officers, first, risk avoidance system in today’s
world is becoming so interconnected; second, it is fully supported by a great of risk
issues that have been addressed in this edited volume.
