Introduction to Fixed Income Analytics: Relative Value Analysis, Risk Measures, and Valuation, Second Edition

Book Description

A comprehensive introduction to the key concepts of fixed income analytics

The First Edition of Introduction to Fixed Income Analytics skillfully covered the fundamentals of this discipline and was the first book to feature Bloomberg screens in examples and illustrations. Since publication over eight years ago, the markets have experienced cathartic change.

That's why authors Frank Fabozzi and Steven Mann have returned with a fully updated Second Edition. This reliable resource reflects current economic conditions, and offers additional chapters on relative value analysis, value-at-risk measures and information on instruments like TIPS (treasury inflation protected securities).

  • Offers insights into value-at-risk, relative value measures, convertible bond analysis, and much more

  • Includes updated charts and descriptions using Bloomberg screens

  • Covers important analytical concepts used by portfolio managers
