Description:

With over 5,100 entries on all aspects of finance and banking, this fully updated reference is definitely a worthwhile investment. Over 200 new entries have been added to this edition and it has been fully updated to reflect recent developments such as structured finance and the subprime lending crisis. The dictionary defines terms from personal and international finance--including money markets, private investments and borrowing, foreign exchanges, and public and government finance--and now offers expanded coverage of central banking, monetary policy, and financial institutions. Feature entries have been included in this edition for the fuller explanation of topical and complex areas, e.g. Financial Times Share Indexes, and bankruptcy law. Recommended up-to-date web links for many entries, accessed via the Dictionary of Finance and Banking companion website, provide valuable extra information that will be regularly updated. With clear and accessible definitions, this jargon-free dictionary is a perfect companion volume to the other financial titles in this best-selling series--A Dictionary of Business and Management, A Dictionary of Accounting, and A Dictionary of Economics--and provides accurate and valuable information for students, practitioners, private investors, and readers of the financial pages alike.
