Financial Instruments and Markets. A Casebook

George C. Chacko, Vincent Dessain, Peter A. Hecht, Anders Sjöman

With this unique casebook, you’ll have the opportunity to gain the analytical, institutional, and functional knowledge you need to use these instruments to solve new problems. Featuring cases from the authors’ MBA and Executive Education level courses at Harvard Business School, the book covers the basics of financial instruments, from terminology to pricing, and the markets in which these instruments trade. Throughout, the emphasis is on how these securities accomplish risk transfer from actors who do not want risk to those who are willing to take it on—for a fee of course.
