Overview

Financial Institutions combines a thorough introduction to United States financial institutions and a substantial international focus. Equally suitable for a first or second course in finance (or courses in money and banking), the text breaks from the non-analytical tradition of most texts and takes an analytic approach in its coverage of such topics as financial institutions management, asset liability management, security pricing and derivatives. Financial Institutions also offers comprehensive coverage of all major financial institutions comprising the financial system. The text provides separate chapters on finance companies, insurance companies, pension funds, financial futures and options, and the swap market-topics frequently omitted or treated lightly in other texts.
