Praise for Fixed Income Securities, Second Edition

Gerald Lucas, Senior Government Strategist, Director, Global Securities Research, Merrill Lynch

Combines a wealth of institutional knowledge, practical tools, and realistic examples, while giving a clear understanding of the underlying theory." Francis Longstaff, Professor of Finance, The Anderson School at UCLA

"An excellent reference for anyone intending to bridge the gap between financial mathematics theory and the practice of financial markets." Marek Musiela, BNP Paribas

From the Inside Flap

"The goal of this edition is . . . to present the conceptual framework used for the pricing and hedging of fixed income securities in an intuitive and mathematically simple manner."
–From the Introduction

Intuitive and mathematically simple. From the very first sentences of Fixed Income Securities, Second Edition, author and fixed income veteran Bruce Tuckman explains what makes his book so refreshingly straightforward. Tuckman provides an in–depth examination of the pricing and hedging of fixed income securities–a necessarily complex and calculation–heavy subject–without cutting corners or overlooking crucial concepts. Yet he explains it in terms that all investors, traders, and financial professionals can understand.

Fixed Income Securities, Second Edition presents the essential concepts and tools developed by today’s most renowned and respected practi–tioners and academics, from convexity and the futures–forward difference through mean reversion and risk premium to arbitrage and risk–neutral pricing. Employing a step–by–step and user–friendly strategy to explain one of the financial world’s most complex and competitive fields, Fixed Income Securities, Second Edition addresses many important topics on the pricing and hedging of fixed income securities, including:

Spot and Forward Interest Rates • Curve Fitting • Duration and Partial Durations • The Shape of the Term Structure • Short–Rate Models • Special Financing • Delivery Options • Floating Cash Flows • The Prepayment Option • And more

Fixed Income Securities, Second Edition approaches a theoretically demanding field from the working professional’s point of view. This Second Edition adds a myriad of examples, applications, and case studies to illustrate the practical uses of difficult concepts. From swaps and options to butterfly spreads, spreads of spreads, and basis trades, this hands–on guide goes straight to the heart of fixed income knowledge and provides a template for trading and investing in the twenty–first–century marketplace.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... and the second edition is muuuch better 14 Oct 2003
By Rats
The first edition of this book attracted the enthusiastic comments below. I can only join them. But please note: the second edition is much wider, fuller of examples (and some are fascinating in retrospect, such as market turmoils after Sept 11), deeper on theory and long on practice. Twice the size, too. It is a primer, yes, but a pleasure to read for the seasoned investor as well as for the novice. Just read it.

This books contains an extremely clear and comprehensive introduction to fixed income markets, with special reference to the US. Useful for students of finance, but especially for practitioners involved in fixed income markets.
