Hm... Are You a Human?
This resource blends quantitative and business perspectives to provide an in-depth understanding of the derivative risk management skills that are necessary to adopt in the competitive financial industry. I mean, some of the term sheets I've seen are just downright bizarre. Well, thanks to Dong Qu, the expert in both quant finance and the business side, now I know. Dong covers everything from creative ideas, country specifics, regulatory issues, and tax implications, to modeling and risk management.
This is an excellent book, unique for its breadth of coverage, genuinely for the whole business of quantitative finance. Dong Qu proved I was wrong. Not only does this volume focus on the main industry-standard pricing models, it also sheds light on the typical workflow and development process of derivatives contracts in banks, from quant library design to meeting new regulatory risk-management requirements.
I wish this book was out there when I started my career as a front-office quant! Written by an author with over 20 years of experience in the industry, this book joins practical hedging, risk management and regulation issues with sophisticated yet not overly complicated maths. An absolute must for all practitioners and very informative for academicians. Dong Qu uses his vast experience of working in major global banks to create an operationally relevant textbook, delivering a range and subject matter which is very readable and applicable in today's financial markets.
