About Each Volume
Volume 1: Financial Markets and Instruments skillfully covers the general characteristics of different asset classes, derivative instruments, the markets in which financial instruments trade, and the players in those markets. It also addresses the role of financial markets in an economy, the structure and organization of financial markets, the efficiency of markets, and the determinants of asset pricing and interest rates.
Volume 2: Investment Management and Financial Management focuses on the theories, decisions, and implementations aspects associated with both financial management and investment management. It discusses issues that dominate the financial management arena—capital structure, dividend policies, capital budgeting, and working capital—and highlights the essential elements of today’s investment management environment, which include allocating funds across major asset classes and effectively dealing with equity and fixed income portfolios.
Volume 3: Valuation, Financial Modeling, and Quantitative Tools contains the most comprehensive coverage of the analytical tools, risk measurement methods, and valuation techniques currently used in the field of finance. It details a variety of concepts, such as credit risk modeling, Black-Scholes option pricing, and Monte Carlo simulation, and offers practical insights on effectively applying them to real-world situations.
