In order to connect finance theories and practical industry experience, each chapter begins with a real-world finance case study. The rest of the chapter introduces fundamental insights and theories, and teaches readers to use statistical models and R programming to analyze real-world data, therefore grounding the learning process in application. Additionally, each chapter profiles significant figures in investment and quantitative studies, so that readers can more fully understand the history of the discipline.This volume will be particularly useful to advanced students and practitioners in finance and investments.
