Consequent upon the restructuring of the management curriculum by the Bangalore University, many new subjects on thrust areas have recently been introduced. One such broad area is the FINANCIAL SECTOR which comprises of financial markets, financial institutions and financial services.
Financial markets have been increasingly influenced in recent times by financial innovations in terms of products and instruments, adoption of modern technologies, opening up of the market to the global economy, streamlining of the regulatory framework and so on. Similarly, many innovative financial products and services have been introduced to cater to the varied requirements of both corporate and individual customers. In the aftermath of this changing financial scenario, students of management are badly in need of a suitable textbook covering all these aspects incorporating the latest developments in the respective fields.
Realising the imperative need to bring out a suitable book on Financial Markets and Services tailored to meet the specific requirements of Management students of Bangalore University, a modest attempt has been made to present this edition in the hands of the academic community. The speciality of this volume is that all matters are presented in a lucid manner and in simple language, notwithstanding the technical nature of the subject. All latest developments have been covered and above all it is most student-friendly. We are confident that this book will serve as a beacon light to the student community who pursue higher education in the discipline of management.
