"The combination of theoretical papers and practical discussions of actual asset/liability management (`ALM') models make for an appealing wealth of inforamtion bound in one volume. Unlike many treatments of ALM modeling problems --especially in the practitioner literature--this book has the strength of tackling a fairly technical in broad manner. The book should have great appeal to those whose responsibility it is to solve ALM modeling problems. In addition, it is an excellent introduction for those outside the field to both the strategic and the technical issues facing ALM modelers today." Financial Engineering News
This volume shows how to invest assets over time to achieve satisfactory returns subject to uncertainties, various constraints and liability commitments. The papers utilize several approaches and integrate a number of techniques as well as discussing a variety of models that have either been implemented, are close to being implemented or represent new innovative approaches that may lead to future novel applications, that is, financial engineering. All in all, this is essential reading for all involved in analysing the financial markets.
