Reviews

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Moinak since his student days when he was an offsite intern for Bloomberg LP at Pondicherry University. He consistently impressed me with his rigor and tenacity. He brings the same spirit to the title "Applied Financial Econometrics". His work considers existing econometric theory and aspires to juxtapose it against emerging research and practice.” (Joel Pannikot, Head, India at CMT Association; Former Head of Asia-Pacific Strategy-Education, Bloomberg LP)

“Moinak Maiti’s book “Applied Financial Econometrics” provides a great introduction to a couple of highly relevant topics in empirical finance. The hands-on approach is a particular strength and guides students how to DO econometrics rather than just to know the concepts. While the book focuses on under- and postgraduate students, also young empirical researchers will benefit from it. A superb book for students and instructors.” (Professor Michael Frömmel, Finance Professor, Ghent University)
