Christopher Viney is firmly established as Australia?s leading textbook author in Financial Institutions and Markets thanks to his market-leading title Financial Institutions Instruments & Markets. Now Viney has produced a completely new text to provide first year students with a quality, authoritative product in a package that meets the unique needs of a shorter, first year course: Financial Market Essentials. Financial Market Essentials is a ground-up text from a trusted name, specifically designed for use by academics that need a resource for a 12 week course. It is carefully crafted to cover the essentials without omitting important concepts. It strikes the right balance between real-world examples and theory, is full of current issues and topical cases and,thanks to Viney?s enthusiasm and style, this is a text that really engages students.
