Would you buy from a stag or a stale bull? Does a blue chip company issue a naked debenture? From dawn raid to liquidity trap, from FOOTSIE to the Nikkei, Dictionary of Finance and Banking, Second Edition provides comprehensive coverage of financial matters that will make it an invaluable resource for anyone working in banking or finance. Completely updated with substantially expanded coverage of banking, it contains over 3,000 entries on every aspect of the financial world: insurance, stocks and shares, commodities, takeovers and mergers, international trade, and government finance.
The dictionary also provides international coverage of the world's most important financial centers, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Prepared with the help of a team of experts from Lloyds Bank, this essential reference offers straightforward definitions of the latest financial jargon, making it the most inclusive paperback finance dictionary on the market. The lucid entries and in-depth coverage of personal finance--including investments, pensions, and taxes--also make the Dictionary of Finance and Banking ideal for investors, homeowners, students, and those generally interested in business and finance.
