Overview

As with previous titles in the IIA (Institute of Internal Auditors) series this is a clear and practical guide to a subject of key importance to financial managers. Whether borrowing, investing, saving or trading, a company will always have to take into account the cost of capital and therefore interest rate risk. The highly accessible style explains everything from the basic principles through to the techniques allowing those without prior knowledge to understand the nature and use of a variety of financial tools, including derivative instruments. This is the third part of the trilogy on market risk, the previous two being Managing Currency Risk and Managing Commodity Risk.
