Description of this Book
Combining theoretical and practical approaches, this book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of risk parity, an alternative method to Markowitz optimization. Written by a well-known expert of asset management and risk parity, it covers risk budgeting techniques, alternative-weighted indexation, strategic asset allocation, the impact of constraints on portfolio theory, and long-term investment policy. It also builds financial exposure to commodities and takes into account credit risk in the management of bond portfolios.

||Professor Roncalli's masterful treatment on the subjects of risk parity investing and risk budgeting represents a significant contribution to the rapidly emerging literature on risk parity. This text provides an academically rigorous yet intuitive and understandable introduction to important topics like risk-based equity and fixed-income portfolio construction as well as asset allocation. The book surveys and pulls from seminar papers as well as frontier research in the risk parity field and provides a balanced and application-oriented discussion on the important nuances. This book is highly recommended for finance industry practitioners as well as students of financial engineering. -Jason Hsu, UCLA Anderson School of Management
