This book should be helpful for professionals working in the financial sector – especially in banking. It won’t take you to the level of doing the maths for pricing the latest derivative contract, but it can help you to contribute, perhaps as a programmer, data scientist or accountant. It should also be helpful for those taking a masters course in finance or financial analysis and who want help in a module on quantitative finance. Enough detail is included to really help in understanding key topics such as the Black-Scholes equation. The book also has breadth so you can discover a range of key financial instruments and how they’re used as well as techniques used by traders and hedge fund managers. Whether you plan a career as a corporate treasurer, risk analyst, investment manager or master of the universe at an investment bank, this book should give you a boost.
