Written for managers and professionals in business and industry, and using a minimum of mathematical language, The Management of Bond Investments and the Trading of Debt addresses three key issues:
  • Bondholder's options, risks and rewards in making investments in debt instruments;

  • The dynamics of inflation, and how they affect both trading in the bond market, and investment decisions; and
