From the Inside Flap

The Basics of Finance is an accessible book for those who want to gain a better understanding of finance, but lack a strong business background. Divided into four parts, it skillfully covers the essential concepts, tools, methods, and strategies in finance without delving too deep into theory or jargon.

Written by expert authors Pamela Peterson Drake and Frank Fabozzi, this reliable resource addresses everything from financial instruments and markets to portfolio management techniques, understanding and analyzing financial statements, and the different types of corporate financial strategy, planning, and policy.

Engaging and accessible, this practical guide:

  • Covers the three main areas of finance—capital market theory, financial management, and investment management—and discusses what each one encompasses

  • Provides a solid foundation in the field of finance, which you can quickly build upon

  • Explores in an introductory way important topics such as cash flow analysis, asset valuation, capital budgeting, and derivatives

  • Includes access to a companion Web site with an appendix of solutions for a selection of the sample problems

In addition, each chapter includes valuable sample problems and end-of-chapter questions so readers can measure their progress.

The Basics of Finance offers finance practitioners and students alike a wealth of essential guidance on the most fundamental and rudimentary topics in finance including an introduction to everything from financial markets and institutions, business finance, portfolio management, and risk management. If you're looking to learn about finance, this is the best place to start.
