Mary R. Hardy is Professor in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Waterloo. She is a past Vice President of the Society of Actuaries, and was initiated as a Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst through the Thought Leadership program. She has a PhD in Actuarial Science from Heriot-Watt University, and is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, and of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, which awarded her the prestigious Finlaison Medal for service to the profession in 2012. Her past books include Actuarial Mathematics for Life Contingent Risks and Investment Guarantees: Modelling and Risk Management. David Saunders is Associate Professor in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Waterloo. He is a financial mathematician, whose research focusses on the application of stochastic optimization and probability to problems in finance and insurance.

'Quantitative Enterprise Risk Management can be strongly
recommended to anyone seeking to develop their skills in risk
management. The book will be particularly useful for those seeking
to master the more challenging technical aspects of risk management
missing in other textbooks.' Andrew Cairns, Heriot-Watt
'This hits the sweet spot between overly abstract mathematical and overly 'math lean' presentations of enterprise risk management.' Gary Hatfield, University of Minnesota
'Hardy and Saunders have written a masterpiece that not only explains [ERM] from a quantitative perspective, but also manages to bridge the gap between it and more qualitative approaches. It impressively covers the whole spectrum from risk taxonomy, risk modelling and measurement, risk mitigation, risk transfer up to (behavioural) risk, and crisis management. I highly recommend it to all those who want to get a deeper understanding of ERM.' Rudi Zagst, Technical University of Munich
