Finance and Financial Markets is a major new text designed for introductory undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA courses in economics and finance. It provides a comprehensive yet relatively non-technical introduction to modern-day financial institutions, markets and instruments. The text covers the role of financial intermediaries, interest rate determination, and the domestic and international money and capital markets. In addition to coverage of equities and foreign exchange there is extensive treatment of derivative instruments such as futures, options and swaps.
