Rational Investing - The Subtleties of Asset Management

Rational Investing - The Subtleties of Asset Management

H. LANGLOIS, J. LUSSIER

Columbia University Press, USA

2017



Many investors believe that success in investing is either luck or clairvoyance. In Rational Investing, finance professor Hugues Langlois and asset manager Jacques Lussier present the current state of asset management and clarify the conundrum of luck versus skill. The core of Rational Investing is a framework for smart investing built around three performance drivers: balancing exposure to risk factors, efficiently diversifying bad luck, and taking advantage of relative mispricings in financial markets. With clear examples from model multi-asset-class portfolios, Langlois and Lussier show how to implement performance drivers like institutional investors with access to extensive resources, as well as nonprofessional investors who are constrained to small-scale transactions. There are few investment products, whether traditional or alternative, discretionary or systematic, fundamental or quantitative, whose performance cannot be analyzed through this framework. Langlois and Lussier illuminate the structure of financial markets and the mechanics of sustainable investing so any investor can become a rational player, from the nonprofessional investor with a basic knowledge of statistics all the way to seasoned investment professionals wishing to challenge their understanding of the asset management industry

In the new economy where value drivers are shifting from tangible to intangibles resources, brands are the most familiar asset.

It provides answers to the many questions that arise when attempting to value a brand: How to understand the origin of brand value? How to assess its value objectively?

Routledge Handbook of Risk Studies

Routledge Handbook of Risk Studies

A. BURGESS, A. ALEMANNO, J. ZINN

Routledge, London

2016



It is over 40 years since we began to reflect upon risk in a more social than technological and economic fashion, firstly making sense of the gap between expert and public assessment of risks, such as to our health and environment. With fixed certainties of the past eroded and the technological leaps of ‘big data’, ours is truly an age of risk, uncertainty and probability - from Google’s logarithms to the daily management of personal lifestyle risks. Academic reflection and research has kept pace with these dizzying developments but remains an intellectually fragmented field, shaped by professional imperatives and disciplinary boundaries, from risk analysis to regulation and social research. This is the first attempt to draw together and define risk studies, through a definitive collection written by the leading scholars in the field. It will be an indispensable resource for the many scholars, students and professionals engaging with risk but lacking a resource to draw it all together

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

I. GILBOA, L. SAMUELSON, D. SCHMEIDLER

Oxford University Press, Roumanie

2015



The book describes formal models of reasoning that are aimed at capturing the way that economic agents, and decision makers in general think about their environment and make predictions based on their past experience. The focus is on analogies (case-based reasoning) and general theories (rule-based reasoning), and on the interaction between them, as well as between them and Bayesian reasoning. A unified approach allows one to study the dynamics of inductive reasoning in terms of the mode of reasoning that is used to generate predictions

M. M. WINKLER, G. STRAZIO

Mimesis Edizioni, Italie

2015



Il libro affronta in tutti i suoi aspetti il tema del riconoscimento giuridico dei diritti delle persone LGBTI in Italia. Procedendo sotto forma di viaggio ideale nelle pieghe dell’ordinamento giuridico e prestando grande attenzione al dibattito politico nostrano attraverso l’analisi della giurisprudenza più recente, il volume si sviluppa in sette capitoli e un breve epilogo. Il punto di partenza è rappresentato dalla campagna di Affermazione civile, volta a ottenere il riconoscimento del diritto costituzionale di gay e lesbiche di contrarre matrimonio. Successivamente, gli autori trattano le fonti europee, con un esame delle ultime sentenze della Corte europea dei diritti umani in tema di non discriminazione per orientamento sessuale e di diritto al matrimonio. Sono trattati nello specifico il tema del riconoscimento e trascrizione dei matrimoni tra persone dello stesso sesso celebrati all’estero, delle discriminazioni sul lavoro, delle famiglie omogenitoriali e infine della lotta all’omofobia
