Zvi Bodie's Investments (McGraw-Hill/Irwin Series in Finance, Insurance and Real Estate), ISBN 9780073530703 boasts a concise and easy to understanding writing style while providing readers with thorough coverage of concepts surrounding investment. The main focus of this text is that security markets are virtually proficient and that most securities are priced accordingly given their risk and return attributes. Asset allocation is greatly emphasized as well as offerings of 'a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets' than competitors. Bodie is a proven and seasoned expert in the realm of investment. His expertise can easily be observed in the pages of Investments (McGraw-Hill/Irwin Series in Finance, Insurance and Real Estate). A professor of Finance and Economics at the Boston University School of Management, Bodie also serves as director of Boston University's Chartered Financial Analysts Examination Review Program. He has also served as consultant to many private and governmental organizations. Currently Bodie is a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research and also serves as director of the NBER Project on Financial Aspects of the U.S. Pension System. Bodie's writing ability is proven through his various publications including articles in leading professional journals as well as his previous books including Pensions in the U.S. Economy, Issues in Pension Economics, and Financial Aspects of the U.S. Pension System. This text is craftily organized into seven sections covering a vast array of topics surrounding investments. Part 1 serves as an 'Introduction' and looks at asset classes, the trade of securities, as well as mutual funds. Part II, 'Portfolio Theory and Practice' tackles subjects on return and risk, risk aversion, optimal risky portfolios, and index models. 'Equilibrium in Capital Markets' are the subject of part III which takes users through concepts such as the capital asset pricing model, arbitrage pricing theory, efficient market hypothesis, behavioral finance, and presents empirical evidence on security returns. Part IV entitled 'Fixed-Income Securities' looks at bond prices and yields, term structures of interest rates, and managing bond portfolios. Part V is devoted to 'Security Analysis' and tackles macroeconomic and industry analysis, equity valuation models, as well as financial statement analysis. 'Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives' are addressed in part VI with discussion of option valuation, futures markets, futures, swaps, and risk management. Part VII rounds out this text with a look at 'Applied Portfolio Management' which delves into portfolio performance evaluation, international diversification, hedge funds, the theory of active portfolio management, and lastly, investment policy and the framework of the CFA Institute.
