Combining solid theory with practical application, INVESTMENT ANALYSIS AND PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT, First Canadian Edition, helps students learn how to manage their money to derive the maximum benefit from what they earn--now and in the future. It combines investment instruments and capital markets with theoretical detail on evaluating investments and opportunities to satisfy risk-return objectives. It also emphasizes how investment practice and theory are influenced by globalization. Thorough yet succinct, the first Canadian edition includes new coverage of such hot topics as behavioral finance, hedge funds, codes of ethics, and more. It is packed with real-world illustrations and hands-on applications. Intended to be rigorous and empirical--yet not overly quantitative--INVESTMENT ANALYSIS AND PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT, First Canadian Edition, is the most comprehensive investments textbook available.
