About this book


This volume highlights recent applications of multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM) models in the field of finance. Covering a wide range of MCDM approaches, including multiobjective optimization, goal programming, value-based models, outranking techniques, and fuzzy models, it provides researchers and practitioners with a set of MCDM methodologies and empirical results in areas such as portfolio management, investment appraisal, banking, and corporate finance, among others. The book addresses issues related to problem structuring and modeling, solution techniques, comparative analyses, as well as combinations of MCDM models with other analytical methodologies.
