Essentials of Investments


The market leading undergraduate investments textbook, Essentials of Investments by Bodie, Kane, and Marcus, emphasizes asset allocation while presenting the practical applications of investment theory. The authors have eliminated unnecessary mathematical detail and concentrate on the intuition and insights that will be useful to practitioners throughout their careers as new ideas and challenges emerge from the financial marketplace. The Tenth Edition includes increased attention to changes in market structure and trading technology, while continuing to be organized around one basic theme – that security markets are nearly efficient.

Investments Asia Adaptation


Investments AGE is adaption of Investments, Ninth Edition, by Zvi Bodie, Alex Kane, and Alan J. Marcus. It blends practical and theoretical coverage, while maintaining an appropriate rigor and a clear writing style. Its unifying theme is that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes. The text places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts.

This Asia Global Edition puts the spotlight on financial instruments, markets, trading practices, institutions, and regulatory framework pertinent to the Asian financial landscape. Students will find the latest reviews and analyses of global financial developments, with an Asian focus, in our Words from the Street features as well as integrated into the main text. With this text, they will have a ringside perspective of both Asian and global markets and be able to form a clear stand on emerging trends. The theoretical and conceptual aspects of investment analysis are not context specific so very few changes were made to such material.
