Illustrates the interplay between modern advances in both risk measures and risk attitudes
Multi-disciplinary coverage appeals to students, researchers and practitioners
Risk has been described in the past by a simple measure, such as the variance, and risk attitude is often considered simply a degree of risk aversion. However, this viewpoint is usually not sufficient. Risk Measures and Attitudes collects contributions which illustrate how modern approaches to both risk measures and risk attitudes are inevitably intertwined. The settings under which this is discussed include portfolio choice, mitigating credit risk and comparing risky alternatives.
This book will be a useful study aid for practitioners, students and researchers of actuarial science and risk management.
