?Understanding Arbitrage: An Intuitive Approach to Financial Analysis by Randall Billingsley

Arbitrage is central both to corporate risk management and to a wide range of investment strategies. Thousands of financial executives, managers, and sophisticated investors want to understand it, but most books on arbitrage are far too abstract and technical to serve their needs. Billingsley addresses this untapped market with the first accessible and realistic guide to the concepts and modern practice of arbitrage. It relies on intuition, not advanced math: readers will find basic algebra sufficient to understand it and begin using its methods. The author starts with a lucid introduction to the fundamentals of arbitrage, including the Laws of One Price and One Expected Return. Using realistic examples, he shows how to identify assets and portfolios ripe for exploitation: mispriced commodities, securities, misvalued currencies; interest rate differences; and more. You’ll learn how to establish relative prices between underlying stock, puts, calls, and ‘riskless’ securities like Treasury bills – and how these techniques support derivatives pricing and hedging. Billingsley then illuminates options pricing, the heart of modern risk management and financial engineering. He concludes with an accessible introduction to the Nobel-winning Modigliani-Miller theory, and its use in analyzing capital structure.

?The Future of Retail Financial Services : What Policy Mix For a Balanced Digital Transformation?
English | 2017 | ISBN: 1786604809 | 105 Pages | PDF | 2.67 MB
In recent years, the digitalisation of retail financial services – retail payments, current/savings accounts, consumer/housing credit, car insurance, property insurance and health insurance – has accelerated significantly. While policy-makers are gradually creating the necessary conditions to strengthen this digital transformation, there remain numerous policy issues and unanswered questions to resolve. Against this background, CEPS-ECRI formed a Task Force to explore four specific core questions:
– What type of level playing field is needed to ensure a successful transitions to the digital transformation?
– What are the opportunities and risks related to big (alternative) data and increasingly sophisticated algorithms?
– What kind of regulatory framework is the most appropriate for pre-contractual information duties in a digital era?
– How can the regulatory framework for digital authentication be improved?
This report presents the findings of the Task Force, based on discussions among the members, led by the Chairman Kim Vindberg-Larsen, a FinTech entrepreneur. These findings are substantiated and elaborated via in-depth research carried out by Sylvain Bouyon, CEPS-ECRI Research Fellow.
