Managing downside risk in financial markets ebook


Frank A. Sortino, Stephen Satchell free


Quantitative methods have revolutionized the area of trading, regulation, risk management, portfolio construction, asset pricing and treasury activities, and governmental activity such as central banking to name but some of the applications. Downside-risk, as a quantitative method, is an accurate measurement of investment risk, because it captures the risk of not accomplishing the investor's goal. 'Downside Risk in Financial Markets' demonstrates how downside-risk can produce better results in performance measurement and asset allocation than variance modelling. Theory, as well as the practical issues involved in its implementation, is covered and the arguments put forward emphatically show the superiority of downside risk models to variance models in terms of risk measurement and decision making. Variance considers all uncertainty to be risky. Downside-risk only considers returns below that needed to accomplish the investor's goal, to be risky.Risk is one of the biggest issues facing the financial markets today. 'Downside Risk in Financial Markets' outlines the major issues for Investment Managers and focuses on "downside-risk" as a key activity in managing risk in investment/portfolio management. Managing risk is now THE paramount topic within the financial sector and recurring losses through the 1990s has shocked financial institutions into placing much greater emphasis on risk management and control.Free Software Enclosed To help you implement the knowledge you will gain from reading this book, a CD is enclosed that contains free software programs that were previously only available to institutional investors under special licensing agreement to The pension Research Institute.

Good book but software demo needs improvement.

  

This book does a good job of describing the flaws with Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) as well as the proposed solution resulting in Post-MPT (Ch 1 and 4). The Visual Basic software demonstrates Post-MPT risk analysis of a single asset. I would have rated it a 5 if the software had demonstrated Post-MPT asset allocation among multiple assets. As it stands I have a choice of EITHER reverse engineering the software/spreadsheet and adding multiple assets OR purchasing third party software.

Not a book for the average Consumer

  

As a financial planner here in the midwest, I'm always looking to improve my business and the way I manage portfolios. For years I've always adhered to the capital asset pricing methods and Bill Sharpe's work in designing investment portfolios. So after looking for a better mousetrap, I found the Sortino Ratio. I was thinking this book -like many others in the investment realm- would be "dumbed-down" and written for a large scale audience----just the opposite. You better brush up on your math skills. It doesn't take you down a road of how to create/manage the risk in portfolios; it's really for large scale management. The formulas are on every other page. (I'm being facetious, but not too far fetched.) If you're a CFA or maybe a CIMA, you might want to have this on your shelf of reference materials; if you're the average planner dealing with mom and pop day-to-day issues, stick with Sharpe. (If you're a consumer looking to manage your portfolio using this book- you've got either way too much time on your hands or some real OCD issues.)(The CD included is somewhat worthless.) *I'm still going to try and develop portfolios using this method, but need a company like Morningstar to wrap it up in a software package.)

Excellent Treatment of Risk/Return - A Must Read

analytics.com) -

Though the book is quite pricey, it delivers a wealth of information regarding various treatments of risk and return. This is not the stuff you find in most financial texts, such as outdated modern portfolio theory. In fact, the material is far beyond the old risk/return traditions of yore. Various authors each contribute a chapter including Sortino so one gets a wide range of views (I only found a few chapters irrelevant to my needs). However, the common theme throughout is, "It is high time to view risk/return in a more meaningful and practical light."This text is not just for portfolio managers. Anyone involved in risk/return assessment will benefit from the material; though much of the book is intended for those with a mathematical slant. The material can easily be applied to discounted cash flow (DCF) financial modeling though this is not discussed in the text. In my opinion, it blows away VAR, Real Options, etc. If you ever thought T-Bills were riskless assts, you need to read this book or be forever wrong. I also found a wealth of information on Sortino's website that complimented the text. Lastly, each chapter is chocked full of nice reference articles for those desiring to delve deeper into the multitude of ideas presented.
