In an approachable, non-technical manner, Risk Takers brings eight modern financial derivatives situations to life, fully exploring the context of each event and evaluating the outcomes. Recognizing that the analysis of derivatives and risk-management techniques is often challenging for students, these selected examples bridge the gap between theory and application to help readers develop intuition into the complex decisions made by companies and municipalities. With a new introductory chapter that reinforces fundamental concepts, Risk Takers is the ideal accompaniment for any derivatives, options and futures, or risk management text.
