Asian emerging markets are becoming increasingly important in the new world order following the 2008 financial crisis. Risk and Return in Asian Emerging Markets uses popular portfolio methods and cross-sectional regressions to report the risk and return characteristics of Asian market participants. Topyan and Cakici help researchers understand the relative importance of certain criteria in forecasting and determining trading strategies for these countries. This is the first book in the field to evaluate, compare, and contrast behavioral model variables with predictive powers for Asian emerging markets. Academicians and practitioners will find this book relevant to develop a firm grasp of the structure behind Asian emerging markets and implement trading strategies.
