Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that we are guest editing a Special Issue entitled “Financial Risk Management and Quantitative Analysis”, which will be published in the Journal of Risk and Financial Management (ISSN: 1911-8074).

Financial risk management has recently been more important than ever. It is particularly essential for safeguarding assets, complying with regulations, and maintaining trust in modern financial markets; therefore, it is a critical component of overall financial health and long-term success for individuals, businesses, and financial institutions. On the other hand, quantitative analyses could provide a systematic and data-driven approach to risk management, enabling institutions, researchers, and regulators to assess, quantify, and mitigate risks effectively. Using quantitative approaches enhances decision making by providing a deeper understanding of the nature and potential impact of market risks, which is essential for maintaining financial stability and resilience. To properly deal with financial risks, markets have been creating derivative products, the value and the use of which are subjects of ongoing research.

This Special Issue aims to highlight the interplay between financial risk management and modern quantitative techniques. For this, we welcome the submission of high-quality articles that introduce new theoretical and applicable notions in the areas of quantitative risk management, financial risk measurement, and related topics.

Some examples of possible research topics for this Special Issue include, among other aspects, the following:

  • Financial risk management.
  • Derivative pricing.
  • Risk measures.
  • Econometric models for risk management.
  • Estimation and evaluation of risk management models.
  • Extreme value theory in risk management.
  • Portfolio insurance.
  • Hedging strategies.
  • Investment strategies with derivatives.
