Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Hedging Market Exposures Identifying and Managing Market Risks

In Hedging Market Exposures, authors and financial industry leaders Oleg Bychuk and Brian Haughey—who through the Great Recession have successfully managed a complex highly leveraged portfolio of asset-backed securities with significant equity, fixed income, credit, and other exposures—offer a practical guide to three fundamental elements of the risk control process that have not previously received the attention they deserve—identifying, quantifying, and managing market risks.

Providing a practical, proactive plan to help you know the risks facing your portfolio, Hedging Market Exposures offers expert guidance on:

  • How to select the appropriate tools to hedge various risks

  • Learning the language of quantitative finance

  • Communicating effectively with professional risk managers and "quants''

  • Asset modeling

  • Market exposures and factor sensitivities

  • Constructing a hedge

The tasks of identifying and quantifying risks and then selecting an optimal hedge when a "perfect" one does not exist are just as important as understanding the intricacies of exotic derivative valuation, but are usually overlooked. In-depth and straightforward, Hedging Market Exposures reveals how to focus not merely on quantitative measurement of risk but also on qualitative analysis and, crucially, on risk management.

While a manager is ultimately concerned with the risks of a portfolio as a whole, the need also exists to understand the dangers associated with the underlying portfolio constituents. In the end, it is the risks of these individual securities and, especially, the interplay of these risks that shape the portfolio's risk profile. Find out how you can identify, quantify, and manage market risks in your portfolio with the dynamic hedging strategies found in Hedging Market Exposures.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Hedging Market Exposures:Identifying and Managing Market Risks

"This timely book draws on the lessons of the recent financial crisis to provide a comprehensive survey of the vast array of overt and, most importantly, hidden hazards that face investors and managers. The authors, who combine extensive industry experience with academic thoroughness, offer a practical guide on how to prepare for market turbulence by following the often challenging steps of identifying, quantifying, and, most crucially, managing risks. An indispensable read for all market participants."—Frank J. Fabozzi, Professor in the Practice of Finance, Yale School of Management, and Editor, Journal of Portfolio Management

"An essential addition to every asset manager's library, this book is an apt reminder that investment management means, above all, managing risks. The authors make this task easier by introducing a number of innovative techniques that extend and complement existing methods."—Jolanta Wysocka, CEO, Mountain Pacific Group, LLC

"This is a valuable resource for seasoned professionals and beginners alike. Methodical yet accessible, it is written by authors with broad experience in hedging various financial exposures, offering a refreshingly original perspective on handling risk and the role and use of hedging techniques. They guide the reader from identifying the major sources of risks in capital markets to a detailed explanation of the quantitative tools necessary to measure those risks, to demonstrating the practical trade-offs of actual hands-on market exposure management."—Rudi Schadt, PhD, Senior Portfolio Risk Analyst, Invesco Ltd.

"This book, by two veterans of the financial crisis, puts the reader on a fast track to understanding risk management and hedging in modern financial markets. It presents a comprehensive catalog of investment risks and a practitioner's perspective on the whys and hows of hedging those risks. The authors elucidate how the interplay of markets, regulation, financial practice, and human behavior impact the hedging decision, and enliven the discussion with examples from past risk management debacles. This is an enjoyable book and can be effective either as an introduction or as an overview."—Colm O'Cinneide, Head of Portfolio Construction, QS Investors, LLC, New York

It deserves reading by even the busiest finance professionals and students.
Manhattanite
Haughey and Bychuk's book is an excellent overview of risk in a volatile market where many so called "experts" misunderstand the real world of hedging risk.

I learnt a lot from this text and gained a deeper understanding of subjects I thought I knew.

Dr. Bychuk and Mr. Haughey's book is unique that it explains nature and interrelationship of the components that underlie portfolio risk and seamlessly progresses to illuminate the most useful and enduring aspects of quantitative analysis and effective risk management. Their real-life treatise explains and clarifies the complex without dilution and is an invaluable asset for those looking to hedge risks, understand quantitative finance, interrelate with quants and managers, understand asset modeling and market exposures, and optimize and construct hedges. It deserves reading by even the busiest finance professionals and students.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As I was reading this book I could not help feeling regret that so few
volumes on capital markets are written like this one. The authors have
accomplished that rare feat of presenting sophisticated material in an
absorbing and accessible manner without cutting intellectual corners
or sacrificing rigour.

Engaging style and readability make this book invaluable for a novice,
but a seasoned veteran will also find many useful insights and
unexpected angles, even in areas of his expertise. From personal
experience, being a long-time financial professional with a background
in mathematical sciences, I was impressed by the authors' ab ovo
explanation of mathematical derivatives; the novel concept of
Equivalent Variation Investment; the guiding principle of the Risk
Management Triad; the beautifully illustrated Scenario Grid and
Synchronised Response Matrix; and the clear but rigorous elucidation
of probability convergence.

The book offers a well-rounded guide to a practitioner, from
macroeconomic and regulatory background to practical advice on model
construction to specific hedging (and, by extension, trading)
strategies. The narrative is enlivened with real-life market charts
and 'tales from the trenches'.

Perhaps the most appealing attribute of this book is its doubtless
future endurance: Dr Bychuk and Mr Haughey deal with profound issues
which will outlast any current or future economic turbulence. Whatever
your role in the financial markets and regardless of your level of
experience you will benefit from reading this book now. But you will
also find yourself revisiting it for years to come.

A worthwhile investment in one's professional future.

This book walks through the decision of why and how to hedge against volatile markets. It is written in an a style which is not too intimidating and although there are some formulas, one can pass these by if one needs to. The book is also a concise and efficient read. Overall, this is the book you should get if you or your firm are uncomfortable with unlimited exposure to interest rate, commodity, equity, FX or and other market value movements. It will provide you a logical framework for your decision making.
