Gallati, Prof. Reto R., Verzinsliche Wertpapiere – Bewertung und Strategie [Income securities – valuation and strategy]

Gabler Verlag, 302 pp, €59.95, ISBN 978-3-8349-2799-6

There are good reasons for investors to take a closer interest than previously in rate-sensitive instruments. In the recent past a number of new tools with completely new properties have been developed. Only a knowledge of them enables an optimal strategy, tailored to individual goals in terms of yield, safety and availability of funds under management. New in this third edition are the topics of real-estate-backed securities and hedge funds. The author is Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
