MULTINATIONAL FINANCE provides a concise treatment of the investment and financial decisions facing the multinational corporation. The text provides a framework for evaluating the opportunities, costs and risks of multinational operations so readers can see beyond the algebra and terminology to general principles. It is distinguished by its logical organization, superior pedagogy, and clear, non-technical writing style. It includes the traditional international finance topics of foreign exchange, currency and derivatives markets, currency risk (transaction, operating and translation) management, country risk, taxation, capital structure, cost of capital, and international portfolio diversification. It also has unique chapters on multinational treasury management, options on real assets, corporate governance, asset pricing, and international portfolio management.

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.
