With its proven conceptual framework and clear presentation, FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTITUTIONS Abridged 9E helps you understand why financial markets exist, how financial institutions serve those markets, and the services that those institutions offer. The text emphasizes the securities traded within each market type, while coverage of financial institutions focuses on their participation in each market, management, performance, regulatory aspects, and sources and uses of funds. The text also explores the functions of the Federal Reserve System, major debt and equity security markets, and the derivative security market. This edition includes extensive updates on the global financial and credit crisis and new WALL STREET JOURNAL features. Features such as Point/Counterpoint discussions of controversial topics and a highlight of global financial issues help you interpret financial news, reinforce key concepts, and make it easier for you to succeed in class.
