|Ideal for any
business traveller, this glossary covers topics relating to banking and finance - from
office practice to stock market and accounting terminology.
The new Glossary covers the expanding and influential field of foreign
exchange, treasury, money and capital markets, sovereign and corporate debt, financial
futures and options, public sector borrowing, mortgage-backed assets, equities,
commodities, business loans and debt collecting, money supply, macro-economic terms,
technical analysis and derivatives, government & local finance, central banking, and
European finance. It is intended for students and professionals in the field of finance as
well as private investors and the readers of the financial pages of newspapers.
The Glossary has an easy-to-use alphabetical format.
Abbreviations and acronyms listed are capitalized with stops and a few are in lower case
letters. The entries have been checked by expert participants in the financial markets.
The coverage is wide and international, with entries for the world's standard currency
units and many of the financial institutions in London, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris,
and Frankfurt. It is inevitable that there will be a number of omissions and errors in a
dictionary of this nature and to improve and extend the usefulness of this dictionary, I
should be grateful to receive suggestions and additional material..
