Investment management 6/e

J, Marx


The goal of investment management is to achieve the investor’s required rate of return by putting assets to their most productive use. The return should compensate the investor for the time during which the funds are committed; the expected rate of inflation and the uncertainty of the anticipated future financial benefits from the investment. Investment management is a concise yet comprehensive introduction to investment analysis and portfolio management; specifically in the South African context. Investment management provides a broad framework and a thorough network of guidelines for the investment management student. It focuses on investment in financial assets such as shares and bonds; and explains both fundamental and technical analysis. It investigates portfolio management and how derivative instruments such as futures; options and swaps may be used for this purpose. A chapter is devoted to the foreign exchange market and its management; and a chapter dealing with the governance of investment management is included. By means of self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter; it prepares undergraduates for postgraduate study and is written with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) Level I learning outcomes in mind.
