Portfolio and risk management faces many challenges today. This is due to the different knowledge needed in order to conduct the total portfolio management. This includes knowledge from the area of finance, economics, but quantitative disciplines as well. The data available today is also increasing at a rapid rate, as well as the different quantitative approaches. This includes many different models and methods for the goals of achieving particular investment goals. Thus, the goals of this book will be to analyze recent achievements in theory and practice of portfolio and risk management, with a focus on quantitative methods.


Since many different approaches of financial modelling are being developed today, a newer publication which includes most recent contributions is needed so that existing practices can be updated to be more tailored to the real state of economics and finance.
