About The Book

The theory and principles of Investment Management remain unaltered but the backdrop of the operations of investment and the practices and procedures of investment management change from time to time. The financial markets in which most of the operations take place are a reflection of the economy and its performance. The economic and financial reforms in India are a continuing process and these affect the operations in the financial markets. The changes are to be incorporated in any revision of a book of this nature, which is being used by students of finance whether in MBA or M.com. or any other professional course. This is the rationale of the present revision, which hopefully helps the student update the information relevant to the area.
