From the Inside Flap
As the securities industry becomes increasingly automated, understanding of the start–to–end operational processes and the underlying reasons as to why the tasks are performed is likely to diminish. Yet, knowledge of the ′bigger picture′ is essential for implementing efficiencies and benefits. In this book, Michael Simmons clarifies the operational process from start to finish, highlighting appropriate risk management strategies.
∗ Introduces the reasons for the existence of securities and describes the roles of the various participants within the industry
∗ Develops the reader′s knowledge of the trade lifecycle and other operational activities in a logical sequence
∗ Describes real–life events to illustrate topics
∗ Conveys both the risks inherent in the various activities and the necessary controls to minimise such risks
∗ Provides descriptions of typical automation in today′s operational processing environment
∗ Describes securities industry objectives and the initiatives being developed to achieve them.

In 450 pages it clearly and succintly covers the full gamut of the operations cycle and instrument types with sufficient details of data strucures and workflows, to design and develop a reasonably complete productline of client prototypes and services kernel of investment banking software, even covering relatively obscure areas like primary market, lending & colllateral operations. You only need to flesh them out with product, algorithmic or customer-specific requirements. No other book on the market comes close; indeed it covers STP better than the dedicated STP books. Some reviewers - who may not have really read the book - say it is euro-centric, outdated, etc. and rate it poorly; I beg to differ! It is as error-free as any book can get and includes tables and diagrams that make it enjoyable reading. It does not adequately hit areas such as details of derivative products, pricing algorithms, etc.Read more ›
It is easy to read and very much "what does happen in the real world" rather than theory. I've read many books of this ilk and this is best of breed.
