Product Description

From the Back Cover

Praise for Fixed Income Securities, Second Edition

"What distinguishes this book from many others on the subject is that Tuckman has skillfully combined intuitive rationale with mathematical analysis to give readers a clear and deep understanding of the market. Tuckman has written a comprehensive reference book that should be found on the desks of both seasoned practitioners and novices alike."
–Gerald Lucas, Senior Government Strategist
Director, Global Securities Research, Merrill Lynch

"This outstanding book offers a well–written and clear tutorial for many of the cutting–edge analytical techniques and models used in practice. 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

"This is an extremely readable book with a balance between technical detail and practical application. Unlike other books in the area, thorough and tightly knit chapters reflect Tuckman′s unique background as a well–respected academic and market participant."
–Tony D. Kao, Managing Director, Global Fixed Income
GM Asset Management

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book out there... 23 July 2003
By "bktwist" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Since all of the reviews cover the first edition, it's definitely worth noting that the 2nd edition is much improved. I've read most of the introductory books on fixed income, and none explain the market as clearly and intuitively as Tuckman. Anyone who is joining a fixed income desk or who seeks to learn more about this area should pick up this book before any others. The repo markets, interest rate and asset swaps, forwards, and futures are all covered in excellent detail. There are few discussions of duration and convexity that rival this one. Overall, this book scores high in all major areas and is highly recommended by all those I know who have come across it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just want to mention a mistake of the book 1 April 2007
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
On page 116, formula 6.1, the price formula for a bond is actually for a semiannual coupon bond, not as stated on the book, for annual coupon bond.

As a consequence, the dv01, duration and convexity formula it states are for semiannual coupon bonds as well.

I think both Tuckman and Fabozzi's books have their own pros and cons. Tuckman's book touchs more on the trading, which is interesting. Although it could be less rigorous in terms of treating the formulas. I own both books.
5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know is in this book 1 Aug 2013
By Yuan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this for my fixed income class and it was simply amazing. It reads almost like a novel, but contains all the pertinent formulas and theorems that you will need to gain a basic understanding of fixed income.
