Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The 2,400 definitions in the Encyclopedia of Finance … could stand alone as a valuable reference for both practitioners and academics. … this excellent reference is targeted at university, corporate, and finance department libraries. With so much terminology to master in the increasingly complex field of finance, the Encyclopedia of Finance constitutes a valuable resource for those in need of a quick definition or formula as well as a vehicle for those wishing to dig more deeply into any of a wide range of topics.” (Ronald L. Moy, CFA Institute, cfapubs.org, February, 2014)

“It is aimed at … students and researchers and lecturers ‘as supplementary material’. … Every essay has a bibliography worth pursuing. … There is a comprehensive subject index … and an author index for those interested in citations and references. … for courses and research where a wide range of quantitative advice and methodology needs to be on show, it contains a wealth of useful and indicative material. For the specialist, then, worth the outlay.” (Stuart Hannabuss, Reference Reviews, Vol. 27 (7), 2013)
