Global Derivatives provides comprehensive coverage of different types of derivatives, including exchange traded contracts and over-the-counter instruments as well as real options. There is an equal emphasis on the practical application of derivatives and their actual uses in business transactions and corporate risk management situations.
Various uses of financial derivatives are outlined from relatively simple transactional hedging problems to more complex strategic risk management situations and applications of options perspectives in corporate risk management scenarios.
This book is ideal for MBA and undergraduate students with a finance or management focus.
