Compiled by the editors, researchers, reporters, and affiliated scholars of The Economist, the International Dictionary of Finance is an authoritative desktop reference featuring more than 3,000 common—and some not so common—financial terms used in all of the world’s major financial centers. Most entries apply to the five major categories of Money Markets, Commodity Markets, Securities Markets, Banking, and Insurance. You’ll also find terms from the worlds of business finance, public finance, accounting, investment appraisal, savings and investment, and statistics and technology. And, to help you reach as complete an understanding of a term or concept as possible, the International Dictionary of Finance is fully cross-referenced.
