Summary
Through its applied approach, Bond Markets, Analysis and Strategies prepares students to analyse the bond market and manage bond portfolios without getting bogged down in the theory.

This eighth edition has been streamlined and updated with new content, and features overall enhancements based on previous editions’ reader and instructor feedback.

The publication is aimed at students enrolled in Fixed Income Securities or Bond Markets courses.

The author's extensive experience in the field of bond markets is reflected in his uniquely applied approach.
