Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management – F. Reilly, K. Brown – 7th Edition


Penned by a widely respected author team, this investments text takes an empirical approach to explaining current, real-world practice. Providing the most comprehensive coverage available, the text emphasizes investment alternatives and teaches students how to analyze these choices and manage their portfolio. Like the editions before it, the sixth edition includes excellent coverage of portfolio theory, capital market theory, security analysis, and international investments.

The purpose of this is to help you learn how to manage your money to derive the maximum benefit from what you earn. Mixing investment instruments and with the theoretical detail on evaluating investments and opportunities to satisfy risk-return objectives along with how investment and theory is influenced by globalization leaves readers with the mindset on investments to serve them well.

The material is intended to be rigorous and empirical yet not overly quantitative. We continue with unparalleled international coverage, newly rewritten and reorganized derivatives material to be more intuitive and clearer, three additional chapters on derivatives pricing for those who want more detail, rewritten material on multifactor models of risk and return, and new CFA problems for more on computations concerning investment decisions.

To manage money and investments, one needs to learn about investment alternatives and develop a way of analyzing and thinking about investments that will be of benefit and allow a foundation as new and investment opportunities become available.
