This book deals with the global financial markets and the instruments that are traded in them. Most books on Finance tend to be heavily mathematical, which is perhaps inevitable given the technical nature of the subject. A few which attempt to cover the basics often end up with a very superficial exposition due to the authors' desire to avoid technicalities. This book emphasizes the concepts in a sequential logical fashion. At the relevant stages adequate mathematical representations are introduced. The objective is to ensure that the reader gets conceptual clarity reinforced by just the right level of technicalities to ensure a comprehensive exposure. Readers desirous of a more technical presentation are expected to graduate to the higher level texts that are available on the subject. This book is intended for senior undergraduate students, graduate students as well as professional readers. The coverage is intended to be adequate to build a strong foundation and kindle the readers' inquisitiveness for additional knowledge. Students of Finance and Economics, and young professionals who are just beginning a career in financial markets should find this book to be invaluable in gaining an understanding of the fundamental principles of the area.
