The text is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate modules in financial derivatives or investments, and students taking the examinations of professional bodies including the ACCA, Securities Institute and Association of Corporate Treasurers. It will also be of interest to practitioners wishing to acquire a working knowledge of financial derivatives.
