About Each Volume

Volume 1: Financial Markets and Instruments skilfully covers the general characteristics of different asset classes, derivative instruments, the markets in which financial instruments trade, and the players in those markets. It also addresses the role of financial markets in an economy, the structure and organization of financial markets, the efficiency of markets, and the determinants of asset pricing and interest rates.

Volume 2: Investment Management and Financial Management focus on the theories, decisions, and implementations aspects associated with both financial management and investment management.
