Thomas R. Jones is about to take a big step in his life: he is about to leave his fairly secure job with a large investment bank and to become an independent fund manager. In order to survive Thomas needs to be one step ahead of the crowd every step of the way and this involves a steep learning curve. One way in which Thomas hopes to achieve this is through the strategic use of derivatives.
Research indicates that most fund managers could benefit from the use of derivatives but very few actually use them or seek information on them. This book explains to fund managers in an enjoyable and accessible form how they can improve their performance and portfolio management techniques through the use of derivatives. By placing techniques and instruments within the context of the everyday life of a fund manager Richard Folcker clearly demonstrates to institutional investors how these techniques relate to their own jobs and can improve performance.
* Records in an easy to read diary format how Thomas learns to use derivatives and become a successful fund manager
