The Five Key Principles for the Foundations of Finance
Foundations of Finance retains its foundational approach to the key concepts of finance, bolstered by real-world vignettes, cases, and problem exercises. Utilising five principles, which are presented at the beginning of the book and applied throughout, the authors introduce a multi-step approach to financial problem solving that appeals to students’ at all levels, math and numerical skills. As in previous editions, the Ninth Edition focuses on valuation and opens every chapter with a vignette based on financial decisions faced by contemporary, real-world companies and firms. Other highly useful features include mini cases, cautionary tales, lists of key terms, and a discussion of ethics. Revised and updated, the newest edition includes new lecture videos, financial thinking, user feedback, and lessons from the recent economic crisis.
