This book provides an accessible and comprehensive one-volume introduction to capital markets. Based on the author's many years experience as a trainer in this field, the book is ideal for those who are entering or planning to enter investment banking or asset management. It will also be an invaluable reference tool for professionals already working in the industry who are seeking to extend their knowledge base.

  Describing how the key products and markets work, who the principal participants are and their overall goals and objectives, Andrew Chisholm provides a thorough overview of the global capital markets. The book covers both equity and debt instruments as well as the principal derivative products. In a step-by-step fashion, making extensive use of real-world cases and examples, it explains the application of interest rate and equity swaps, financial futures, equity options and options on currencies and interest rates. An extensive glossary explains concisely many of the 'jargon' expressions used in the financial markets.
