Abstract

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.
