'Very comprehensive, clearly-written and the breadth of coverage is very impressive.' -- Dr A. Thomas, University of LiverpoolFrom the Author:
The 5th edition has given me the opportunity to use a linked
web site to provide missing analytical details ( such as Black-Scholes) for
those happy with maths. Two entirely new chapters cover Hedge Funds and the
increasing significance of India and China. Extended coverage has also been
given to topics such as credit derivatives, hybrid bonds and Islamic
This is an increasingly popular basic textbook and one used by top
investment bankers as part of their training programmes. The 4th edition
was translated into Chinese by both mainland China and Taiwan.
All in all I am delighted with the 5th edition and hope that it will be of
great benefit for training needs everywhere.
