Having the big idea is merely the beginning. Raising and using venture capital is pivotal to the success of many an ambitious new venture, but venture capital is more than money. It's far too expensive to be treated merely as cash, and if used well, far more critical to the successful venture.This can be a daunting process. Smarter Ventures leads you inside the world of European venture capital, and takes you step-by-step through the venture cycle. By holding a mirror up to both sides of the money-raising process, Katharine Campbell shows how entrepreneurs can better understand venture capitalists - and vice versa - leading to more productive relationships and smarter ventures. Katharine Campbell explains how venture capitalists think, what they are looking for and why. Learn how to spot the good -and the bad - investors, and equip yourself with the tools and the knowledge to seal a successful partnership. Smarter Ventures is the bible of the European venture capital market and your complete companion to the venture cycle. "Smarter Ventures is essential reading for anyone interested and involved in new ventures and venture capital - whether funding it, using it, providing it or teaching potential entrepreneurs.... The book is so complete it is almost a funding cookbook.... Anyone involved in enterprise, as a practitioner, venture capitalist or academic, should regard Smarter Ventures as required reading." - Book Review, Financial Times

Adaptive Markets - Financial Evolution at the Speed of Thought (Hardcover, 2 Ed): Andrew W. Lo Adaptive Markets - Financial Evolution at the Speed of Thought (Hardcover, 2 Ed)
Andrew W. Lo
R848 R668 Discovery Miles 6 680 Save R180 (21%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

A new, evolutionary explanation of markets and investor behavior Half of all Americans have money in the stock market, yet economists can't agree on whether investors and markets are rational and efficient, as modern financial theory assumes, or irrational and inefficient, as behavioral economists believe--and as financial bubbles, crashes, and crises suggest. This is one of the biggest debates in economics and the value or futility of investment management and financial regulation hang on the outcome. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Lo cuts through this debate with a new framework, the Adaptive Markets Hypothesis, in which rationality and irrationality coexist. Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, Adaptive Markets shows that the theory of market efficiency isn't wrong but merely incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. Lo's new paradigm explains how financial evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thought--a fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation. A fascinating intellectual journey filled with compelling stories, Adaptive Markets starts with the origins of market efficiency and its failures, turns to the foundations of investor behavior, and concludes with practical implications--including how hedge funds have become the Galapagos Islands of finance, what really happened in the 2008 meltdown, and how we might avoid future crises. An ambitious new answer to fundamental questions in economics, Adaptive Markets is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how markets really work.

Communicate your company's commitment to growing its market value
Investor Relations for the Emerging Company, Second Edition helps emerging public company officers and directors communicate to investors their company's value. This helps emerging public companies understand how to communicate their commitment to that goal in a manner that is honest, ethical, and legal. This strategic management responsibility integrates finance, communication, marketing, and securities law compliance to enable the most effective two-way communication between a company, the financial community, and other constituencies, which ultimately contributes to a company's securities achieving fair valuation. The most viable method of financing a company's growth is its common stock. Regardless of financial market cycles, an investor relations (IR) program is a critical component of a company's growth strategy.
In 2002 The Sarbanes-Oxley Act significantly increased the importance of investor relations in the financial markets. Here Rieves shows organizations how to understand these regulations and comply with them to the letter of the law.
Readers will understand what to communicate about the company's commitment to growing the market value of its common stock and with whom to communicate that commitment. From describing the various organizations, institutions, mechanics, and behaviors of capital markets to clarifying the requirements and best practices for reporting and disclosure, this book provides all the answers.

The goal of investment management is to achieve the investor's required rate of return by putting assets to their most productive use.

Investment management focuses on investment in financial assets such as shares and bonds, and explains fundamental and technical analysis. It investigates portfolio management and how derivative instruments such as futures, options and swaps may be used for this purpose. In addition, a chapter is devoted to the foreign exchange market and its management. The book provides a comprehensive framework and a thorough network of guidelines, with self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter. It is written with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA(R)) Level I learning outcomes for investment analysis and portfolio management in mind.

This title presents today's most easy-to-follow introduction to technical analysis - how it works, and how you can make it work for you. In today's fast-moving investment markets, traders and investors can't help but be curious about the documented success of technical analysis. Yet many find themselves put off by the mathematical density of books on the subject, and are falling back into the spray-and-pray style of investing without giving technical analysis a chance. "Technical Analysis Applications" is a practical and results-oriented introduction to technical analysis and charting. One of the first books to make the topic both cohesive and understandable, this hands-on resource will provide you with: strategies for using technical analysis in every market - stocks, bonds, futures, and currencies; and, explanations of which tools provide the most predictive value in various markets and trading environments.It also provides you with: descriptions of how best to use different types of charts - candlestick, point and figure, line, and bar Not even the best, most knowledgeable trader can make the right call every time, on every trade. But through technical analysis, it is definitely possible to increase your percentage of right calls. Let "Technical Analysis Applications" show you how to make technical analysis a profitable component of your trading program, and give you the tools you need to make accurate choices - instead of hopeful guesses - on every trade you make. Ultra-fast, inexpensive computers and other technological breakthroughs have made technical analysis and the study of price behavior far more accurate and accessible than in the past.But while traders and investors looking for an edge are increasingly turning to chart analysis to increase their market understanding and overall confidence, they must still have a firm underpinning of knowledge if they are to prevent themselves from stumbling into mistakes that have cost dearly in the past. "Technical Analysis Applications" is the one book that every trader should read to understand what technical analysis can do for their investing programs, what it cannot do, and how to use technical analysis and charting to understand and act on market tendencies in a wide variety of situations. Written to help anyone take the guesswork out of the trading day, and replace it with the confidence that comes from understanding what has happened and why, this results-oriented book examines: trends - what they are, why they occur, and how traders can use charts to help identify continuation patterns or reversals.It also examines: chart patterns - what some of the most popular and potentially profitable patterns look like, and what they're trying to tell you about the market; quantitative methods - examination of moving averages, Gann Analysis, Elliot Wave, and other market-proven methods; bullish and bearish signals - how to recognize, distinguish, and act on them in a variety of charting situations; helpful hints and trading tips - guidelines for determining the best mix of tools and techniques for a particular market or trading style. In today's up-and-down financial markets, profit opportunities appear and disappear continuously throughout each trading day.The key to taking advantage of these opportunities is to know they are coming in advance, and the key to this knowledge is to obtain a solid working of modern technical analysis. "Technical Analysis Applications" takes this wide-ranging subject, too often shrouded in double-speak and complex mathematics, and makes it both coherent and practical. Filled with sample charts, examples of actual trades, and in-depth yet understandable descriptions, it will help you develop a more complete understanding of the proven and profitable world of technical analysis.

The Transformation of Wall Street - A History of the Securities and Exchange Commission and Modern Corporate Finance... The Transformation of Wall Street - A History of the Securities and Exchange Commission and Modern Corporate Finance (Hardcover, 3rd ed.)
Joel Seligman
R2,745 Discovery Miles 27 450 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Transformation of Wall Street is a comprehensive and insightful historical analysis of the Securities andamp; Exchange Commission from the perspective of a leader in securities regulation. The Transformation of Wall Street offers an in-depth look at the history of the SEC's origins, accomplishments, and failings since its creation in 1934. Each chapter in the book takes historical look at the tenure of the various SEC chairmen. The first edition, published in 1977, covered the SEC through the Nixon-Ford presidential administration. A revised edition was published in 1995, updating the book through 1992. Now, the third edition continues the history until 2001, the end of Arthur Levitt's Chairmanship, with a treatment of auditing issues through the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (July 2002). In this revised edition, author Joel Seligman draws on unpublished SEC files and extensive personal interviews to provide a comprehensive examination of the origins, accomplishments, and failings of the SEC and its leaders, from the creation of the SEC in 1934 to the present. The new material, among other things, addresses: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act, which has had a significant impact on private securities litigation after its passage in 1995 The structure of the securities markets (which are in an important transition because of Electronic Communications Networks; decimalization; international competition; and the continuing evolution to greater institutionalization of our markets as well as the growth of several new products, most recently security futures products) Municipal securities markets (which were largely ignored before the recently resigned Arthur Levitt) Several issues with respect to the accounting profession (most notably auditor independence and the independence of accounting standard-setting boards). In addition, this work focuses on Chairman Levitt, whom the author believes was one of the most accomplished of the post World War II chairs, and had the challenge of being a Chair appointed by a Democratic party president during a period when Republicans controlled both houses of Congress as well as a period of extraordinary ferment in the securities market.
