Editorial Reviews

"This textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students who participate in a student-managed portfolio is designed to fill the gap between traditional academic textbooks on investments and portfolio management, and practice-oriented books on specific investment strategies.", March 2014 "The Bruce and Greene text provides a comprehensive toolkit for the practical management of a student managed investment fund, including many detailed examples taken from real world funds. It thoroughly covers all of the major topics in leading investments texts, but supplements theory with realistic practical application."--Gary C. Sanger, Louisiana State University
