Leveraged Exchange-Traded Funds - A Comprehensive Guide to Structure, Pricing, and Performance (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016): Peter... Leveraged Exchange-Traded Funds - A Comprehensive Guide to Structure, Pricing, and Performance (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016)

Leveraged Exchange-Traded Funds (LETFs) are publicly-traded funds that promise to provide daily returns that are in a multiple (positive or negative) of the returns on an index. To meet that promise, the funds use leverage, which is typically obtained through derivatives such as futures contracts, forward contracts, and total-return swaps. As of the end of 2012, there were over 250 LETFs in North America with total assets of approximately $32.24 billion. While the amount of assets held by these funds is still small, their popularity continues to grow as their trading volume is significantly larger and much more dynamic than traditional, non-leveraged ETFs. This comprehensive guide to LETFs provides high-level practitioners and researchers with a detailed reference tool for navigating the market and making informed investment decisions. Written from a measured analytical perspective, Miu and Charupat use clear and concise explanations of all important aspects of LETFs, focusing on such key elements as structure, pricing, performance, regulations, taxation, and trading strategies. The first two chapters set the stage for the book by identifying exactly what LETFs are and how they are regulated. The following chapters then look to bridge theory with practice to dive deep into the mechanics, portfolio rebalancing techniques, and daily compounding effects that make investing in these funds so lucrative.

"Paul Wilmott Introduces Quantitative Finance, Second Edition" is an accessible introduction to the classical side of quantitative finance specifically for university students. Adapted from the comprehensive, even epic, works "Derivatives" and "Paul Wilmott on Quantitative Finance, Second Edition," it includes carefully selected chapters to give the student a thorough understanding of futures, options and numerical methods. Software is included to help visualize the most important ideas and to show how techniques are implemented in practice. There are comprehensive end-of-chapter exercises to test students on their understanding.

In praise of Paul Wilmott and his previous works

Some people write for fame, some for money. Most academics write books to impress the professor down the corridor so that one day they will be the professor down the corridor everyone is trying to impress. Uniquely, Paul Wilmott writes to inform and educate his readers, to convey ideas, and, most importantly, to show them "how to do it,"

His greatest admirers are his readers. So, instead of endorsements from the great and the good, here are the words of his fans. Their sometimes unique spelling has been retained.

I found it to be easily the best book that I have read/worked through on the subject.

I thought it might amuse you to know that I think your book got me a job!

I'd like to say that this is a great book but you already know that!

I'm a junior derivatives trader in Mexico City. I've seen your book and I have only one coment: SEXY!

Loved your book, which is a breath of fresh air, amongst all those arid derivatives books!! It really is in a class of its own. I have wastedso much money on stupid derivative books which too elementary or way too complicated.

Purchased both Quant Finance and Derivatives a couple of days ago. Will not be able to afford steak or wine for weeks as a result.

BTW, I want to congratulate you for the *best* book in Financial Engineering I've read in the last years.

After reading the book I'd like to follow one of your courses, but they are way too expensive.

Congratulations for your brilliant book.

What I like about it is that it has this no-nonsense kind of approach that you'd expect in a physics text and it spells out the "stuff between the equations."

Congratulation to your book Derivatives !!! The way you describe, present, and deliver Derivative knowledge is unique! One can feel your passion on the topic. It's a pleasure to read, study, re-read...

Congratulations on a great new book - 'PW on Quant Finance'. I bought the DERIVATIVES one but cannot afford this one!!

I am fanatical follower of your book "Derivatives." You are best and this not flattery. Sorry from my English!

We use it for the part of our Banking and Risk Management course and it's much more comprehensive than the books that we have recommended in our study guide.

Your book "Derivatives: the Theory and Practice of Financial Engineering" is the best in the market so far.

I shall waste no more precious words but to say that I am very simpathetic to your humor and irony...what most don't always seem to understand: irony is one of the GREAT filters to access knowledge in this world and an elegant one for that matter.

your book rocks.

Congratulations to the success of your book (I got my copy of it for Christmas).

I would like to thank you for writing Derivatives.

Derivatives is the Greatest! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Just read the first 7 chapters of Derivatives, and it speaks to me.

complete, brilliant and amusing, stimulating for some original ideas and examples, didactically ready to be used by Students; it employs mathematical tools as tools only, not as a target; it is the last but the best book on derivatives in my library.

You're book truly struck me as fun, informative and brilliant! Us American would say 'Awesome Dude!!!'

I had a course on derivatives and your book was not suggested by the teacher (a stupid teacher).

Love you for ever, baby. xxx M

Investing in the Trump Era - How Economic Policies Impact Financial Markets (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018): Nicholas P. Sargen Investing in the Trump Era - How Economic Policies Impact Financial Markets (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018)

In the wake of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, investors and the electorate alike are seeking clarity on a wide range of macro policy issues that will impact the economy and markets in the years ahead. The primary goal of this book is to provide an objective source for investors to learn about economic policy issues that surfaced. Topics include long-term growth, the federal budget deficit, healthcare reform, tax reform, regulatory policies affecting the financial system and environment, the nexus of monetary, exchange rate and trade policies, and globalization. The book explains how these issues have evolved, considers arguments from both sides of the political divide, and draws upon evidence from studies by experts in the respective areas. A related goal is to assess the likely impact of economic policies on financial markets. While the presidential election was close, the markets' response was decisive: U.S. and global equity markets went on a tear as consumer and business confidence soared. This surprised many investors who believed a Trump victory would be bad for financial markets. It also caused many to question whether expectations embedded in markets were too optimistic. Sargen's assessment is presented in the opening and concluding chapters.

Today, early-stage investors and entrepreneurs find themselves in a dilemma in which they must choose between profit and impact; between traditional, for-profit-only models on the one hand, and multiple-bottom-line structures with a positive social or environmental impact on the other. To help them, and in response to a time in which climate change, exponentially growing technologies, and COVID-19 are calling into question humanity's priorities, the author proposes a new investment paradigm, namely Integral Investing.Integral Investing incorporates and transcends the best practices of both traditional venture capital and impact investing. It provides a seamless integration and shows how technological progress need not be our rival, but can instead be our ally in ensuring the prosperous society we all want. Drawing on her own investments and stellar track record in Silicon Valley and Germany over the past 25 years, the author reveals the mechanism of Integral Investing. At the heart of it is a powerful, 360-degree de-risking tool called the Theta Model, which reveals how to make smart investment decisions based on the comprehensive integration of traditional due-diligence criteria, sustainability metrics, and assessments of the founders' and team culture. But it doesn't stop there. In turn, the book demonstrates how to use human-centered AI to scale and digitalize the investment process. The goal here is to accelerate the use of exponential tech, capital, and consciousness leadership to transition to a sustainable global society: a process the author refers to as the Investment Turnaround. The 21 principles of Integral Investing, which she defines using Ken Wilber's Integral Theory, lead to her manifesto on how to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals within Planetary Boundaries by 2050 through early-stage investing and entrepreneurship. Similar to the 15th century, when the Medicis inspired the Renaissance, today humanity is once again at a crucial turning point where pioneering financiers, investors, entrepreneurs, and other committed individuals have the opportunity to leave behind the legacy of a prosperous society. This handbook provides a source of inspiration, and shows how self-actualization, a positive mindset, and a consciousness that is backed by a world-centric desire can become the driving force for solving the global grand challenges.

Chances are you haven't been making the best investing decisions.

" T]he always irreverent author of the Reformed Broker blog has written an excellent narrative that shares all of your broker's dirty little secrets. Much like Michael Lewis' "Liar's Poker" captured the essence of 1980s institutional Wall Street, Brown's "Backstage Wall Street" recreates the boiler room retail brokerage culture of the 1990s and early 2000s in vivid color."

"With a smirk, a lashing wit, and an appropriate irreverence, Joshua Brown gives voice to what all investment professionals are--or should be--secretly thinking."
--MICHAEL SANTOLI, "Barron's" columnist

"The pages of this book are filled with colorful exposes of misconduct in the way Wall Street presents and sells itself (and its financial products offerings ). . . . Run don't walk to read Brown's chronicles of deception perpetrated by] those wonderful folks on Wall Street, who nearly bankrupted the world's fi nancial system a few short years ago."
--DOUGLAS A. KASS, Seabreeze Partners Management, Inc.

"Everything you've ever read about Wall Street is a total lie. Everyone is lying to you every day. Until you read this book."
--JAMES ALTUCHER, Formula Capital and author of "I Was Blind but Now I See"

"Joshua wants Wall Street to be awesome. You can feel it every day on his amazing blog and in this great book. He is happy to shout when Wall Street drives him crazy. I guarantee you will enjoy this book that describes the action behind the business of Wall Street and his own experiences along the way."
--HOWARD LINDZON, Lindzon Capital and founder of StockTwits

"Joshua Brown may be the funniest writer on finance today, but "Backstage Wall Street" could make you cry more than laugh. The buffoons, manipulators, and incompetents Brown parades before us are the stewards of our retirement accounts....What's important is that investors understand the choices before them. "Backstage Wall Street" goes a long way to taking us backstage, while making us laugh in the process."

About the Book:

Wall Street is very good at one thing: convincing you to act against your own interests. And there's no one out there better equipped with the knowledge and moxie to explain how it all works than Josh Brown. A man "The New York Times" referred to as "the Merchant of Snark" and "Barron's" called "pot-stirring and provocative," Brown worked for 10 years in the industry, a time during which he learned some hard truths about how clients are routinely treated--and how their money is sent on a one-way trip to Wall Street's coffers.

"Backstage Wall Street" reveals the inner workings of the world's biggest money machine and explains how a relatively small confederation of brilliant, sometimes ill-intentioned people fuel it, operate it, and repair it when necessary--none of which is for the good of the average investor.

Offering a look that only a long-term insider could provide (and that only a "reformed" insider would "want" to provide), Brown describes:

THE PEOPLE--Why retail brokers always profit--even if you don't
THE PRODUCTS--How funds, ETFs, and other products are invented as failsafe profit generators--for the inventors alone
THE PITCH--The marketing schemes designed for one thing and one thing only: to separate you from your money

It's "that" bad . . . but there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Brown gives you the knowledge you need to make the right decisions at the right time.

"Backstage Wall" Street is about seeing reality for what it is and adjusting your actions accordingly. It's about learning who and what to steer clear of at all times. And it's about setting the stage for a bright financial future--your own way.

About the Book:

The next financial disaster is around the corner. Are you prepared?
