Credit is essential in the modern world and creates wealth, provided it is used wisely. The Global Credit Crisis during 2008/2009 has shown that sound understanding of underlying credit risk is crucial. If credit freezes, almost every activity in the economy is affected. The best way to utilize credit and get results is to understand credit risk. Advanced Credit Risk Analysis and Management helps the reader to understand the various nuances of credit risk. It discusses various techniques to measure, analyze and manage credit risk for both lenders and borrowers. The book begins by defining what credit is and its advantages and disadvantages, the causes of credit risk, a brief historical overview of credit risk analysis and the strategic importance of credit risk in institutions that rely on claims or debtors. The book then details various techniques to study the entity level credit risks, including portfolio level credit risks. Authored by a credit expert with two decades of experience in corporate finance and corporate credit risk, the book discusses the macroeconomic, industry and financial analysis for the study of credit risk. It covers credit risk grading and explains concepts including PD, EAD and LGD. It also highlights the distinction with equity risks and touches on credit risk pricing and the importance of credit risk in Basel Accords I, II and III. The two most common credit risks, project finance credit risk and working capital credit risk, are covered in detail with illustrations. The role of diversification and credit derivatives in credit portfolio management is considered. It also reflects on how the credit crisis develops in an economy by referring to the bubble formation. The book links with the 2008/2009 credit crisis and carries out an interesting discussion on how the credit crisis may have been avoided by following the fundamentals or principles of credit risk analysis and management. The book is essential for both lenders and borrowers. Containing case studies adapted from real life examples and exercises, this important text is practical, topical and challenging. It is useful for a wide spectrum of academics and practitioners in credit risk and anyone interested in commercial and corporate credit and related products.

Readers see, first-hand, the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. This book spends a significant amount of time examining how behavioral finance can be used by practitioners today. Readers utilize theory and applications in every chapter with a wide variety of end-of-chapter exercises, discussion questions, simulations and experiments that reinforce the book's applied approach.
Accounting literature refers to the procedural and conceptual approaches in the teaching of an introductory accounting course. This book integrates these two approaches by teaching students to understand the why of accounting before considering the how of accounting. The pedagogical philosophy used is referred to as the `concepts model', hence the title. This impacts on both the order of teaching of the topics, as well as how various topics are taught. A strong emphasis is placed on comprehending the conceptual framework, and especially on understanding and applying definitions and recognition criteria of the elements of the financial statements. Students are able to acquire a conceptual understanding of each topic before considering the procedural aspects. The fifth edition of A Concepts-based Introduction to Financial Accounting is up to date with the latest requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards. It incorporates expanded pedagogical features such as learning path tools at the beginning of each chapter and extracts from published financial statements within each chapter that relate to the chapter content. These complement the existing features including the highlighting of key definitions in the text and the integration of pause and reflect scenarios in each chapter. This textbook has an accompanying question book by DL Kolitz and M Kolitz, Questions, Exercises and Problems in Financial Accounting: A Concepts-Based Introduction. Lecturers' support material for the fifth edition include PowerPoint slides and teaching notes for each chapter on how to present the concepts-based approach. These are only made available to prescribing institutions. Support material for students includes lecture-readiness tests that assess students' understanding of each chapter in preparation for lectures. These are made available via the prescribing institutions.

This book is designed to serve as a textbook for advanced
undergraduate and beginning graduate students who seek a rigorous
yet accessible introduction to the modern financial theory of
security markets. This is a subject that is taught in both business
schools and mathematical science departments. The full theory of
security markets requires knowledge of continuous time stochastic
process models, measure theory, mathematical economics, and similar
prerequisites which are generally not learned before the advanced
graduate level. Hence a proper study of the full theory of security
markets requires several years of graduate study. However, by
restricting attention to discrete time models of security prices it
is possible to acquire mathematics. In particular, while living in
a discrete time world it is possible to learn virtually all of the
important financial concepts. The purpose of this book is to
provide such an introductory study.
There is still a lot of mathematics in this book. The reader
should be comfortable with calculus, linear algebra, and
probability theory that is based on calculus, (but not necessarily
measure theory). Random variables and expected values will be
playing important roles. The book will develop important notions
concerning discrete time stochastic processes; prior knowledge here
will be useful but is not required. Presumably the reader will be
interested in finance and thus will come with some rudimentary
knowledge of stocks, bonds, options, and financial decision making.
The last topic involves utility theory, of course; hopefully the
reader will be familiar with this and related topics of
introductory microeconomic theory. Some exposure to
linearprogramming would be advantageous, but not necessary.
The aim of this book is to provide a rigorous treatment of the financial theory while maintaining a casual style. Readers seeking institutional knowledge about securities, derivatives, and portfolio management should look elsewhere, but those seeking a careful introduction to financial engineering will find that this is a useful and comprehensive introduction to the subject.

This revised and updated fifth edition of Accounting for Managers builds on the international success of the previous editions in explaining how accounting is used by non-financial managers.

As in the previous editions, the book links theory with practical examples and case studies drawn from real business situations across a wide range of manufacturing, retail and service industries.
