From the Publisher

This is a thoroughly updated edition of Dynamic Asset Pricing Theory, the standard text for doctoral students and researchers on the theory of asset pricing and portfolio selection in multiperiod settings under uncertainty. The asset pricing results are based on the three increasingly restrictive assumptions: absence of arbitrage, single-agent optimality, and equilibrium. These results are unified with two key concepts, state prices and martingales. Technicalities are given relatively little emphasis, so as to draw connections between these concepts and to make plain the similarities between discrete and continuous-time models.

Readers will be particularly intrigued by this latest edition's most significant new feature: a chapter on corporate securities that offers alternative approaches to the valuation of corporate debt. Also, while much of the continuous-time portion of the theory is based on Brownian motion, this third edition introduces jumps--for example, those associated with Poisson arrivals--in order to accommodate surprise events such as bond defaults. Applications include term-structure models, derivative valuation, and hedging methods. Numerical methods covered include Monte Carlo simulation and finite-difference solutions for partial differential equations. Each chapter provides extensive problem exercises and notes to the literature. A system of appendixes reviews the necessary mathematical concepts. And references have been updated throughout. With this new edition, Dynamic Asset Pricing Theory remains at the head of the field.

More Money, More Problems: The Down Side of a Mega Valuation

Entrepreneurs fight for that big first valuation just like job seekers fight for the biggest salary--figuring the more they get now, the bigger the payday will be down the road. It's inherent to the hustle. This fight over ownership and control pits entrepreneur against investor the minute talk of a company's valuation begins. The investor wants a bigger percentage of the company via a lower valuation; the entrepreneur wants the opposite. But why the hostility? The reality is that both parties could learn a bit from the smaller-piece-of-a-bigger-pie analogy. Here's why. It's a tough way to sta

How To Determine The Value Of Your Pre-Revenue Startup

Good news: Despite the perception that we in the VC world employ armies of analysts working behind the scenes and prepping us to beat down the valuation expectations of poorly prepared entrepreneurs, nothing could be further from the truth. Bad news: Much like trading baseball cards, there is no science to pre-revenue valuations. It all comes down to a negotiation. However, there are some basic guidelines for founders that can help both sides come up with a figure that works for everyone. A pre-money valuation is what the company is worth before third-party dollars go into it. A post-money val

5 Tips to Getting an Accurate Valuation

When Brian Duerring decided last fall to pursue venture capital for StreamSpot, a Cincinnati-based start-up that provides automated streaming services to faith-based organizations, he needed to calculate a valuation for his business to effectively negotiate terms with potential investors. “I knew there was going to be some sort of cap or ceiling, and I felt it would be smart to have that ammunition in my pocket for when that first term sheet came over,” he explains. To arrive at a figure, Duerring employed various evaluation models, then incorporated the value he assigned to the company’s phys
