The focus of the text is on applying modern finance and providing students with the ability to make financial decisions as future business professionals. The authors do not assume that the students have any background knowledge in finance and therefore provide written examples and in-depth explanations to help students become familiar with the material. Our Brealey focuses on how companies invest in real assets and how they raise the money to pay for these investments. It also provides a broad introduction to the financial landscape discussing the major players in financial markets, the role of financial institutions in the economy and how securities are traded and valued by investors. The book offers a framework for systematically thinking about most of the important financial problems that both firms and individuals are likely to confront.
