"Choudhry's book provides clear and comprehensive coverage of a wide range of concepts and calculations crucial to a practitioner’s understanding of modern fixed-income security markets. Fixed-Income Securities and Derivatives Handbook
takes the reader from the basic bond instruments through yield-curve modeling and options and into relatively new fields of credit derivatives and inflation-linked bonds. The examples help to clarify difficult ideas and to demystify some of the complex algebra associated with this area.
The book will appeal to many levels of readers, both in the university sector and in financial markets."
