Financial Derivatives

Financial derivatives–financial instruments whose value depends on other basic instruments, such as stocks or bonds–are one of the most important financial innovations of the last century. While they are unsurpassed as tools for speculation, financial derivatives have also emerged as important risk-management tools in the corporate world. If you want to understand derivatives without getting bogged down by the mathematics surrounding their pricing and valuation, Financial Derivatives, Third Edition is the book for you. Through in-depth insights gleaned from years of financial experience, Robert Kolb and James Overdahl clearly explain what derivatives are and how you can prudently use them within the context of your underlying business activities.
