Commercial real estate risk news

What’s new in risk modelling?

A timeless, comprehensive and practical reference tool and self-study guide

After more than 10-year of professional experiences, I decided, it was time to share my knowledge. Today, there are strong forces in the financial industry pushing for the less developed commercial real estate market to adopt more complex quantitative approaches in assessing real estate risk. However, knowledge is often not passed on and materials available have not kept up to include new models and concepts to ensure they become common practice and general industry knowledge.
My answer to the problem was a book that is a practical guide for those wishing to gain further skills and knowledge in financial modelling for real estate investments not only in Europe, but all around the world. The book is aimed at professionals and graduate students of real estate investment, real estate finance, surveying and land economics who do not have a comprehensive mathematical, statistical and programming background. But it will also give students from other finance and accounting courses an understanding of how to apply models from equity and fixed income analysis to real estate as an alternative asset class. By using an interdisciplinary approach it closes the gap between real estate and other financial asset classes and shows how market and credit risk models from these areas can be adopted and adapted to analyse real estate investment. In addition, it bridges the gap between the pure quantitative financial modeller and the professional analyst. It provides financial modelling for real estate debt, equity and derivates to underpin investment and credit decisions.

What are the key features of the book?
