The second edition includes new structure emphasizing the distinction between the equilibrium and the arbitrage perspectives on valuation and pricing, as well as a new chapter on asset management for the long term investor. "This book does admirably what it sets out to do - provide a bridge between MBA-level finance texts and PhD-level texts.... many books claim to require little prior mathematical training, but this one actually does so. This book may be a good one for Ph.D students outside finance who need some basic training in financial theory or for those looking for a more user-friendly introduction to advanced theory. The exercises are very good." --Ian Gow, Student, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University *Completely updated edition of classic textbook that fills a gap between MBA level texts and PHD level texts *Focuses on clear explanations of key concepts and requires limited mathematical prerequisites *Online solutions manual available * Updates includes new structure emphasizing the distinction between the equilibrium and the arbitrage perspectives on valuation and pricing, as well as a new chapter on asset management for the long term investor
