This successful investments title has been rewritten for ease and clarity, and is designed to serve as an undergraduate text for courses in investments and finance. This updated edition includes major new investment products and the recent behaviour of financial markets. Theory chapters are now grouped at the end of the book. The international nature of investing is discussed in a number of chapters, and the divergent nature of stock markets in 23 countries is compared and contrasted. The Portfolio Analysis and Capital Market Theory chapters remain comprehensive and there is a unique chapter on taxes and law.
