Financial Economics Summary

Financial Economics: making sense of information in financial markets by Brian Kettell

In the last 20 years there has been a revolution in the way financial economists understand the financial market place. The announcement that the 1990 Nobel prize for Economics had been awarded to three financial economists acknowledged that financial economics is now a subject in its own right and needs to be studied as such. Financial Economics brings this science out of the realms of academia and into the hands of those that can most use it. This fusion of economics, finance and statistics now enables investors to gain a true understanding of how the markets behave and how to perfect their trading strategies. The book demystifies financial economics in a manner that will provide you with a thorough understanding that can be immediately put into practice without overwhelming you with the trivial. It looks at what exactly financial economics is, its founding fathers and their theories, its role in the valuation of financial assets and recent developments in the field. Chapters within the book also investigate more closely modern portfolio theory, capital market theory, behavioural finance, bubbleology, some puzzles in financial markets and the relationship between derivatives markets and financial economics. Financial Economics is essential reading for dealers, analysts, newcomers to the financial markets, and finance professionals across the board who need to maintain their edge at the forefront of developments in financial markets.
