Praise For Fixed Income Securities

"Fixed Income Securities is excellent, seamlessly combining theory and experience to make the global fixed–income markets come alive for students and practitioners. It is obvious that the authors not only understand and articulate theory with ease, but also enjoy its application to myriad simple and complicated instruments."
Myron Scholes, 1997 Nobel Laureate in Economics; Frank E. Buck, Professor of Finance, Emeritus, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University

"It takes authors who have both insight into financial economics and a thorough understanding of how markets function to write a book that integrates theory and practice so effortlessly. As market turmoil forces us to revisit historical relationships, the book′s setting of applications and data in the context of sound theory is particularly useful."
Ravi Mattu, Managing Director and Head of Analytics, PIMCO

"Fixed Income Securities conveys intuition, is full of examples, and is comprehensive in its coverage. Professionals will find valuable insights in the authors′ treatment of advanced topics; students will value the careful organization and presentation of ideas. I recommend it very highly indeed.
Krishna Ramaswamy, Edward Hopkinson, Jr., Professor of Investment Banking, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

"This is a great reference book for fixed income students and practitioners alike, which seamlessly combines mathematical concepts with practical applications."
Kostas Pantazopoulos, Global Head of Interest Rate Products, Goldman Sachs
