A comprehensive, current survey of investment products and instruments
Thorough, accessible, and up to date, Financial Instruments is a guide to all of the financial products currently being traded in the world's markets. Through plain language and in a user-friendly format, David M. Weiss, author of After the Trade Is Made, outlines the many tools available and their unique functions, features, and structures.

? Unit Investment Trusts
Financial Instruments is an indispensable tool for finance professionals-portfolio managers, brokers, financial planners, and institutional investors. It's also a definitive resource for sophisticated individual investors.
