Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The changes in the banking industry over the last decade have spawned a greatly expanded vocabulary, and "Barron's Business Guides" has responded with a dictionary which will be of great service to bankers, business and management professionals, attorneys, investors, and librarians. The diminutive size of the book (4 3/16 x 7) belies its breadth. Not only are cogent definitions included, but author Fitch wisely adds longer discussions where needed. He summarizes key banking- and securities-related laws and provides a table of acronyms as well as extensive cross references. The financial community will find this an invaluable reference tool, as will libraries with business collections of any depth.

Whether you are a novice seeking to learn the fundamentals of banking, or an active professional who has just encountered an unusual term, you will want this book. Each definition is short (only a paragraph or so), but most contain links to other terms, so the reader can gain a progressively deeper understanding of how terms interrelate. I also like the frequent inclusion of dates (e.g., the year a particular law was passed). The definitions are authoritative--based on a number of leading accounting, banking, and financial entities identified in the introduction. It's worth far more than its bargain price. I look forward to the next edition (Year 2000?). Keep up the good work!

Working in an IT company catering to bankers I bought this book to help understand their lingo. I have to say it hasn't disappointed yet. It is also very up to date the latest IT/banking terms. If you were to read all the definitions in this book you would probably know more than you banker. A great reference. Buy it!

This can almost be considered an inexpensive textbook. It not only defines, but explains the terms in a simple, easy to understand format. Although in dictionary form, it consistently relates the terms to one another so the reader will understand how the concepts interwind. Includes financial and banking terms.

I use this in a training class about bank documentation. It is very helpful and comprehensive. It defines terms in concise and easy to understand words. Even a seasoned banker can learn something from this dictionary.

I've been in banking for nearly 13 years and have sometimes struggled with much of the terminology used during corporate functions, meetings, or just watching CNBC. Whether a novice or a veteran, it's something that should be in your briefcase, pocket book, or in your desk for quick reference. This is a "NO BS" assessment!

Paid for by me. ;O)

Very useful for the finance professional, be it as an immediate resource, or as a first step in a more thorough research.

If you're dealing with a foreclosure, if you're dealing with a bank, you need to know the definition of the words they are using. Do not assume that since you can read English, that you know the meaning of the words. For instance, do you think the bank loaned you other peoples money or that the bank loaned you their money when you got that loan to buy your home? If you do, you're ignorant. What's more the bank is making a fool of you. What is the definition of "Money Multiplier", Fiat Money" and "Fractional Reserves"? The answer will surprise you.
