Author Sunil Parameswaran offers clear, worked examples of everything from basic equity and debt securities to complex instruments such as derivatives and mortgage-backed securities. In addition to explaining the instruments, Parameswaran also outlines the structure and dynamics of the free-market system and clearly highlights the environment in which such financial instruments are traded.

Financial securities lend themselves naturally to a quantitative analysis. To ensure that readers, irrespective of their academic background, are able to navigate through the presentation, a detailed chapter is devoted to the topic of interest rates and the time value of money. Thereafter the focus shifts to the intricacies of various financial instruments, including:

equity and preferred shares bonds money market instruments foreign exchange products derivatives mortgage-backed securities swaps.
