Analysis of Financial Data teaches the basic methods and techniques of data analysis to finance students, by showing them how to apply such techniques in the context of real-world empirical problems.

Adopting a largely non-mathematical approach Analysis of Financial Data relies more on verbal intuition and graphical methods for understanding.

Key features include:

  • Coverage of many of the major tools used by the financial economist e.g. correlation, regression, time series analysis and methods for analyzing financial volatility.

  • Extensive use of real data examples, which involves readers in hands-on computer work.

  • Mathematical techniques at a level suited to MBA students and undergraduates taking a first course in the topic.
