Intelligent Investor's - How top fund managers think about investing our money by Lawrence Gosling, founding editor of Investment Week.
Leading fund managers are regularly asked about what they think about markets and economies but rarely does anyone ask them about their investment philosophy and motivations for managing money in ever more competitive investment environments.
The book interviews more than 20 London-based fund managers, including the likes of Neil Woodford and Richard Buxton, about just these issues and their early memories of being fascinated by financial markets. 100% of the £20 cover price is split between the three charities supported by Incisive Media, the publisher of Investment Week.

"The Global Financial Crisis drove home the limitations of traditional statistical analysis to identify systemic risks stemming from structural weaknesses. Many observers have come to realize that economic and financial markets are examples of complex, highly interconnected, dynamic, adaptive systems. Network analysis is increasingly seen as an important tool for categorizing and tracking the key characteristics of such systems and for identifying areas of potential vulnerability. Network Theory and Financial Risk is a timely introduction to this essential topic. While not for the mathematically faint of heart, it will serve for many years to come as a vital resource for those seeking solid technical grounding in this area."

"‘Financial networks are all around us’ - this is how the book starts. Is there a better way to express the powerfulness of the use of network theory to tackle financial problems? Network Theory and Financial Risk gives a comprehensive view on financial networks and takes the next step towards applications and visualization. Kimmo and Samantha have provided an exhaustive overview of financial networks techniques combined with many examples that bring the abstraction of the subject to practical understanding."

About the book
The financial crisis of 2007-2009 demonstrated the dangers of ignoring connections in complex systems for economics and finance: Lehman Brothers and AIG weren’t the biggest players in terms of size, but were very highly connected in the markets and their failures led to shocks across the financial system which are still being felt today.
As a result, applications of network theory are becoming ever more present in finance, with network analysis providing answers to questions where traditional analysis methods are weak; and also leading to improved models across wide types of risks. In fact, networks underlie virtually every type of risk, including liquidity, operational, insurance, and credit risk. However, while network approaches are very useful, understanding complex networks is not easy.
Network Theory and Financial Risk is a hands-on guide to analysing and modelling financial networks. Authors Kimmo Soramaki and Samantha Cook provide an in-depth introduction to network theory and examine general tools for network analysis, detailing coverage of four types of widely-occurring financial networks: payment systems, exposure networks, trade networks, and asset correlation networks.
