This text will rank among the most essential readings for both market professionals and academics." -Gregory J. Parseghian, Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, Freddie Mac

An absolute must for anyone in the world of fixed income."-Michele Donegani, Head of Asset Allocation and Manager Selection, European Investment Managers (EIM).
