About this book

This book provides unique information to prepare graduates and newly hired corporate and investment banking professionals for a career in the global markets environment of large universal and international investment banks. It shows the interrelationship between the three specific business functions of sales, trading, and research, as well as the interaction with corporate and institutional clients. The book fills a gap in the available literature by linking financial market theory to the practical aspects of day-to-day operations on a trading floor and offers a taxonomy of the current banking business, providing an in-depth analysis of the main market participants in the global markets ecosystem. Engaging the reader with case studies, anecdotes, and industry color, the book addresses the risks and opportunities of the global markets business in today’s global financial markets both from a theoretical and from a practitioner’s perspective and focuses on the most important fixed-income financial instruments from a pricing, risk-management, and client-marketing perspective.

—Bruce Tuckman, Clinical Professor of Finance, NYU Stern School of Business, USA

 

“There are practical books about trading. There are academic publications on quantitative finance. There are books that attempt to detail life on Wall Street. But this book is the only one I am aware of that effectively incorporates all three of these subjects.”

Garth Friesen, Chief Executive Officer, III Capital Management
