Overview

While there are a number of outstanding texts on valuation of interest rate derivatives, there are hardly any that provide a comprehensive treatment of the relevant accounting principles. Venkata Subramani's well-structured book does a great job in filling this void. For each instrument, the author first provides a clear description of the product and its associated cashflows. He then proceeds to discuss the finer aspects of accounting using detailed examples which will definitely enrich the reader's knowledge of the subject. This book, written by a leading subject expert, is definitely unique in its treatment and content.

The recent global financial crisis has resulted in a thorough review and overhaul of accounting standards in order to improve financial reporting and enhance investor confidence. Although accounting for fixed income and derivative financial instruments is complex this book provides the reader with a clear and concise explanation of this intricate subject. The informative product descriptions and detailed explanations of the accounting events at each stage of the trade life cycle will be of great benefit to those who want to gain a better understanding of this intricate topic.

With this second volume Venkata Subramani has structured a very comprehensive book focused on accounting for fixed income securities and interest rate derivatives. This author puts in perspective a very detailed and exhaustive presentation of the nuances of the different flavors of financial instruments and a detailed description of the related accounting events and associated entries. It becomes very effective because every example details how the life cycle of financial instruments interacts with the accounting output making this book a helpful bridge between the financial products and their accounting translation.
