This book explores the behavior of interest rates as they relate to changing market conditions, and examines how risk can be managed. It successfully bridges the gap between interest-rate theory and its application to fixed-income security portfolio management.
Coverage includes the function of financial markets, the flow-of-funds system, foundations for interest rates, inflation and returns, derivative securities, the influence of taxes, and the social l allocation of capital.
For those in the financial community, in business, and in government, who are concerned with investing in or issuing fixed-income securities.
New edition of a textbook on interest rates and financial risk management. Issues addressed include why interest rates and interest rate differentials exist, what causes them to change, and how risk can be shifted through hedging devices in the global financial arena. Intended for use in classes on money and capital markets, bond markets, investments, and financial institutions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
