Overview

In recent years there has been an increased awareness of the international bond markets as potential sources of return enhancement and/or risk reduction. As a result, investors throughout the world have increasingly adopted a global approach and invested in bonds from several countries. Governments have encouraged this by liberalizing their bond markets, making them more liquid and more accessible to international investors. Futures and options markets have been developed on government bonds in several major countries, permitting more effective implementation of investment strategies. Many global investors restrict their participation in foreign bond markets to foreign government bonds because of their low credit risk and their liquidity. Because of their crucial role, The International Government Bond Markets by Frank J. Jones and Frank J. Fabozzi focuses on eight of the world's major government bond markets: the U.S., Japan, Germany, the U.K., France, the Netherlands, Canada and Australia. It is the first book that provides a single, unified, succinct source of information about these major government bond markets. The core information is supplemented by the treatment of several other topics of importance and interest to global bond investors. The book is divided into three sections:. Section I provides background information about price yield/conventions, accrued interest calculation, international clearing organizations and global custody. Section II describes the eight government bond markets in terms of: nature of the market (maturity, structure and types of issues); method of issuance (primary market); secondary market; price/yield conventions; settlement procedures; taxation; and futures and options markets. Section III discusses investment strategies, beginning with an overview of the foreign exchange market and instruments for controlling foreign exchange risk, and concluding with a general framework for designing an active global bond portfolio strat
