This book fills a gap for a technical but not impenetrable guide to hedging options, and the 'Greek' (Theta, Vega, Rho, and Lambda) parameters that represent the sensitivity of derivatives prices. Taking the viewpoint of the front office practitioner, the book introduces the various option hedging strategies and the mathematics behind them in a concise but thorough manner. The book begins at an elementary level, with an introduction to the Black–Scholes formula (upon which most quantitative finance is built) from a practitioner perspective.

The Greeks and Hedging Explained is a welcome addition to the Financial Engineering Explained series and will serve as a foundation text for some of the more complex titles in the series.
