This book includes coverage of the three main topic areas of finance: markets and institutions, investments, and managerial finance. While the greatest emphasis is on corporate topics, the amount of detail has been limited to facilitate coverage of areas that are of interest to a greater number of readers. Reviewers are impressed with the quantity and quality of practical examples included to help readers understand the material.
An introductory survey of the field, presenting a broad overview of the key areas of investments, institutions, and managerial finance. Provides the foundation necessary for finance majors, but is accessible and useful to non-majors who want to better understand financial information for making business and personal finance decisions. Assumes a basic understanding of accounting and a limited understanding of statistics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
