Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I've used the Madura text for 10 years now and have not found a better financial markets and institutions book."
This text describes financial markets and the institutions that serve those markets. Chapters on financial services explain how a specific unit, for example, the insurance unit, of a financial conglomerate conducts its operations. The text is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate courses in financial markets and institutions. This sixth edition features a new chapter on stock market microstructure, and moves chapters on pension funds and credit unions to an accompanying Web site. The financial impact of September 11 is incorporated. Problems that require the use of templates are included for this edition, to reinforce understanding of relationships between variables. The author is affiliated with Florida Atlantic University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
