Multinational Finance assumes the viewpoint of the financial manager of a multinational corporation with investment or financial operations in more than one country. The text provides a framework for evaluating the many opportunities, costs, and risks of multinational operations in a manner that allows readers to see beyond the algebra and terminology to the general principles of multinational financial management.

Multinational Finance includes coverage of traditional topics such as foreign exchange and Eurocurrency markets, multinational treasury management, management of currency risk exposures (transaction, operating, and translation), country risk, multinational capital structure and cost of capital, taxation of foreign source income, and international portfolio diversification. Also included are distinctive chapters on the economic rationale for hedging currency risks, derivatives markets (with separate chapters on currency futures, options, and swaps), real options in international markets, international corporate governance, and international asset pricing.

Intended for MBA and advanced undergraduate classes, the text requires only a single preparatory course in finance. Chapters that extend material from the first course begin with a brief review of the fundamentals. Numerous graphs and figures assist the reader in understanding key financial concepts and techniques are used in practice. Advanced material is placed in chapter appendices, so that study can be tailored to each individual's objectives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Butler is certainly a strong candidate for future adoption. On the whole it's easy to read and follow and covers most of the important topics in an integrated fashion.

Teaching international parity conditions (IPCs) is tricky. The average textbook presents them in a drab, unconnected manner, leaving the student confused and unaware of their importance in explaining realized currency returns and forming foreign exchange forecasts. Butler does an excellent job in covering this topic and avoids these pitfalls

Chapters 1-17 of the Butler text make it very straight-forward to extend the concepts/results from principles to the multinational setting.
