The Penguin Dictionary of Financial Terms
You may think you're able to give a succinct definition of a discretionary trust, or explain quite easily how to arrive at a volume weighted average price - but, if challenged, how confident are you really? Would you be comfortable being called on in a board meeting to explain oligopsony, or lagging indicators, or outlining the circumstances where a clawback option might be the appropriate action circumstances require? The Penguin dictionary of financial terms translates and deciphers the often complex terminology used in business. Offering clear and accurate explanations of financial expressions, acronyms and concepts, and using cross-referencing to connect related terms, this is an indispensable handbook for managers, investors and students of business and finance - and may even prove surprisingly useful for those who might have been in the field for a long time but have got a little rusty - to help them navigate the often baffling and sometimes loaded minefield of financial jargon.
