This comprehensive new book explains and clarifies the essential building blocks underlying the pricing and risk analysis of fixed-income securities and derivatives - using mathematics lightly, to make things easier, not harder.

You will find essential information on:
* The global money market
* Foreign exchange transaction and foreign exchange derivatives
* Bonds and zero coupon bonds - including a risk management-driven discussion of duration and convexity
* Interest rate swaps, currency swaps, and exchange-traded futures
* Stochastic models and option pricing
