Clear, comprehensive and well written – the book is particularly relevant in the post credit crunch world where transparency and due diligence have come to the fore. I highly recommend this book to anyone involved in the development an implementation of systems in finance and trading.”Geoff Chaplin, partner in Reoch Credit Partners LLP

“This is a well thought out introduction to how the trading process works in investment banking. An excellent resource to dip in to for those new to investment banking, with up to date examples of each stage of the trade lifecycle, and particularly good coverage on all aspects of risk management and model validation, processes and the development of trade systems.”Heather-Anne Hubbell, Managing Consultant, Deputy Head, Risk Practice, Rule Financial
