Review quote

"The text serves as a comprehensive guide to all the different instruments available on the market, and the coverage is in-depth... Specifically, it is the only text I have considered which covers the mortgage market and the various related instruments in such detail. It is also the only text to devote an entire chapter to Munis... The quantitative analysis in the text is commendable. It is in sufficient detail and developed in a step by step fashion which the students would like." - Rita Biswas, University at Albany - SUNY "Capital the best text in its field for upper-level undergraduate and entry-level MBA courses. Compared to [other texts in this market] this text is much more advanced and thorough, providing students an in-depth understanding of all financial markets, instruments and participants... The writing style is outstanding. The authors have masterfully crafted each chapter finding balance between laconic and loquaciousness... Most, if not all, of the financial markets and institutions texts fail to include investment banks as relevant market participants. Not only does Capital Markets include this key market "player," but provides the best overview of the scope and nature of this financial entity." - Charles B. ("Chip") Ruscher, The University of Arizona "...this textbook is comprehensive in coverage and very well written. It treats an extensive number of topics in a clear and concise manner." - Jacobus T. Severiens, John Carroll Universityshow more
