Risk Analysis in Finance and Insurance, Second Edition presents an accessible yet comprehensive introduction to the main concepts and methods that transform risk management into a quantitative science. Taking into account the interdisciplinary nature of risk analysis, the author discusses many important ideas from mathematics, finance, and actuarial science in a simplified manner. He explores the interconnections among these disciplines and encourages readers toward further study of the subject. This edition continues to study risks associated with financial and insurance contracts, using an approach that estimates the value of future payments based on current financial, insurance, and other information.

New to the Second Edition

Expanded section on the foundations of probability and stochastic analysisCoverage of new topics, including financial markets with stochastic volatility, risk measures, risk-adjusted performance measures, and equity-linked insuranceMore worked examples and problems

Reorganized and expanded, this updated book illustrates how to use quantitative methods of stochastic analysis in modern financial mathematics. These methods can be naturally extended and applied in actuarial science, thus leading to unified methods of risk analysis and management.

"... a well-chosen collection of topics from risk analysis and management for finance and actuarial science illustrated with solved problems."
-Christel Geiss, Mathematical Reviews, November 2013

Praise for the First Edition:
... a useful addition to a rapidly expanding field.
-Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

Here is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the ideas, methods and probabilistic models that have transformed risk management into a quantitative science and [have] led to unified methods for analyzing insurance and finance risk.
-Business Horizons

Risk Analysis in Finance and Insurance is a self-contained and highly comprehensive introduction to mathematical finance and its interplay with insurance risk analysis. Students will like the book due to the many worked-out examples deepening the understanding of the theory. A special and probably unique feature of the book is its unified approach to financial and insurance risks. As a consequence of the convergence of financial and insurance markets, practitioners in financial institutions will have great benefit from books like Melnikov's covering mathematical approaches to risk analysis in both markets in a consistent manner.
