    An Analytical Approach to Investments, Finance, and Credit provides a highly practical and relevant guide to graduating students beginning their careers in investment banking. The author applies his 30 plus years of experience in banking and 15 years of teaching as an adjunct finance professor to effectively combine the core principals of an academic textbook with the practical training that major investment banks provide to first-year analysts.

    Part I introduces the student to investment portfolio concepts including volatility risk, alpha, beta, Sharpe ratio, and efficient frontiers. Part II covers the primary markets where companies access the equity, bond, and loan markets. Part III explains these markets from the investor’s point of view, covering the secondary trading markets of stocks, bonds, loans, and derivatives. Part IV comprises corporate finance fundamentals that many investment banks require for valuation, financial, and credit analysis for private and publicly traded companies.

    Part V provides students with step-by-step financial modeling for analyzing leveraged buyouts, mergers and acquisitions, and other complex financial models. These models are accessible via the Cognella Active Learning platform.

    Throughout the text, the author provides multiple case studies that bridge the gap between academic concepts and practical application, which reinforces critical thinking.

    Chris Droussiotis’s training and expertise is in the areas of investment banking and has worked for major money center banks in executive management positions, including Bank of America Merill Lynch, CIBC Oppenheimer, Mizuho Financial Group, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation. He currently teaches at Columbia University, Fordham University, Baruch College, and Seton Hall University. He is the co-author of Mergers and Acquisitions: A Practitioner’s Guide to Successful Deals, published in 2019.
