This new concise Australian text has been written for one semester introductory finance undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The text is based around the KIS principle (keep it simple) and aims to provide a solid but rigorous introduction to the basic fundamentals of finance. At the same time academic rigour is not compromised.
Written in a student friendly writing style, the text is completely Australian and has been written from scratch, in its entirety by Australian authors.
The topics covered in the text satisfy the curriculum requirement for a finance course by the professional accounting bodies.
Each copy of Introduction to Corporate Finance comes packaged with a copy of Mark Freeman's Learn FM 3.0.
The text is 400 pages long. It is two-colour and comprises 12 chapters that cover the core introductory finance topics.
Each chapter contains special boxes, which provide critical comments, real world material and cases. These viewpoints have been written by a leading Australian practitioner, Kent Wilson, Managing Director of Credit Suisse First Boston Australia.
Applied Practical Approach
Where appropriate, the key concepts are supported with real life Australian examples.
Australian Equities Market
In a first, an entire chapter has been devoted to an explanation of the Australian Equities Market. Topics covered include the securities, participants, technology (SEATS) and protocols involved in share trading.
The final chapter deals with the important topic of risk management. Features on the Sydney Futures Exchange are used in examples to illustrate how corporations hedge interest rate and currency risk.
Strong Pedagogical Framework Numerous pedagogical features have been used to help students. Among the useful features are: opening chapter aims, end of chapter concept checklists, a large number of end-of-chapter questions and further reading references.
