Risk management solutions for today′s high–speed investing environment Real–Time Risk is the first book to show regular, institutional, and quantitative investors how to navigate intraday threats and stay on–course. The FinTech revolution has brought massive changes to the way investing is done.

The discussion dissects FinTech innovation to highlight the ongoing disruption, and to establish a toolkit of approaches for analyzing flash crashes, aggressive high frequency trading, and other specific aspects of the market.
Today′s investors face an environment in which computers and infrastructure merge, regulations allow dozens of exchanges to coexist, and globalized business facilitates round–the–clock deals. This book shows you how to navigate today′s investing environment safely and profitably, with the latest in risk–management thinking.
  • Discover risk management that works within micro–second trading
  • Understand the nature and impact of real–time risk, and how to protect yourself
  • Learn why flash crashes happen, and how to mitigate damage in advance
