How do financial markets operate on a daily basis? These four volumes introduce the structures, instruments, business functions, technology, regulations, and issues commonly found in financial markets. Placing each of these elements into context, Tee Williams describes what people do to make the markets run. His descriptions apply to all financial markets, and he includes country-specific features, stories, historical facts, glossaries, and brief technical explanations that reveal individual variations and nuances. Detailed visual cues reinforce the authorâs insights to guide readers through the material. This book will explain where brokers fit into front office, middle office, and back office operations.
