Description

Pricing Money provides a highly practical introduction to the principles of bonds and fixed income and is aimed at readers who have little prior knowledge. The book is written in a style that is not overly mathematical or theoretical but takes a practical approach focusing on the aspects of pricing and trading fixed-income securities that are most relevant to the day-to-day activities of people working in the markets. Starting at a basic level the author explains the concepts and principles behind fixed income in an informative way using every day examples that can be understood by the layman. It includes a listing of the terms used; the rules and conventions; the techniques for valuation and pricing and a description of the different roles within the industry. This book will be an excellent training tool for new recruits to the financial markets.show more
