Futures contracts and forward rate agreements

Viney, Christopher and Phillips, Peter (2012) Futures contracts and forward rate agreements. In: Financial institutions, instruments & markets, 7th ed. McGraw-Hill Australia, Sydney, Australia, pp. 612-643. ISBN 9780071012416

Abstract

This text discusses the structure, functions and operations of a modern financial system and, crucially, recognises that finance is a global business. Therefore, as well as solid integration of the local financial environment, the international aspect has been considered essential and means the text is as relevant to a commercial bank in Hong Kong as to an investment bank in Sydney. This text has been comprehensively updated to take account of the continuing crisis in the world financial market.
