'The ongoing economic situation is pushing researchers to re-discuss and update the fundamentals of financial modeling. Writing an encyclopaedic book on financial modeling for exotics based on the risk free rate, a unique discount curve, no credit risk and no liquidity costs would be neither relevant nor realistic in 2012. This is not such a book. The reader will find here an interesting tackling of current and relevant problems such as multi-curve modeling and credit valuation adjustments, with a very interesting discussion of closeout and especially goodwill, which cannot be found anywhere else to the best of this endorser's knowledge. Funding costs, hints at systemic risk, regulation and Basel III are also considered. It is great to find a quantitatively detailed analysis of such aspects in a single book, and readers who are open-minded and attentive to the current challenges posed by the market will find this book to be informative, relevant, pleasant to read and even entertaining.' - Professor Damiano Brigo, Head of the Mathematical Finance Research Group, Imperial College, London, UK, and author of Interest Rate Models: Theory and Practice and Credit Models and the Crisis.
