Basic Financial Management

9780130838216: Basic Financial Management

This text balances a conceptual understanding of the material with rigour in building an understanding of the financial decision-making process, rather than just an introduction to the tools and techniques. Building the presentation around the 10 Axioms of Finance as an intuitive framework for understanding 'the big picture', the text provides a cohesive and enduring understanding of the tools of modern theory while developing the logic behind their use. *Concludes each chapter with a section on 'How Financial Managers Use This Material'; that ties the chapter material to students' future job setting and to real world companies. *Features unique treatment of Value Based Management - VBM - the set of management tools designed to help firms manage their operations in such a way as to enhance shareholder value. *Integrates examples of international finance throughout. *Focuses on the creation of wealth. *Emphasizes actual business practices throughout - to demonstrate both the relevance of topics discussed and the implementation of theory. *Weaves coverage of international finance throughout the text and includes an optional full chapter that deals directly with the topic.

Product Description:

This text provides an introduction to financial decision-making that is rooted both in current financial theory and world economic conditions. It presents ten basic principles (or axioms) of finance in the opening chapter and weaves these concepts throughout the book. The student is presented with a cohesive, interrelated subject from which future, as yet unknown problems can be approached. The authors' goal is to provide an understanding of the basic tools and fundamental principles upon which finance is based. This edition shifts coverage of organizational form and taxes to Chapter 1 to present the tax environment early, with its discussion limited to tax questions that will affect financial decision making and expands treatment of risk and rates of return and the concepts of bond and stock valuation.
