Five new chapters, numerous additions to existing chapters, and an expanded collection of questions and exercises make this Second Edition an essential part of everyone's library. Between defining swaps on its first page and presenting a case study on its last, Salih Neftci's introduction to financial engineering shows readers how to create financial assets in static and dynamic environments. Poised among intuition, actual events, and financial mathematics, this book can be used to solve problems in risk management, taxation, regulation, and above all, pricing.
- The Second Edition presents 5 new chapters on structured product engineering, credit markets and instruments, and principle protection techniques, among other topics
- Additions, clarifications, and illustrations throughout the volume show these instruments at work instead of explaining how they should act
- The Solutions Manual enhances the text by presenting additional cases and solutions to exercises
Primary: financial engineers, quantitative analysts in banks, investment houses, and other financial industry professionals; graduate students in financial engineering and financial mathematics programs.

"Its focus on financial engineering and the actual use of derivative instruments makes Neftci's book an extremely useful complement to the standard introductions to derivative pricing and financial mathematics. The value of the text has been enhanced further by the addition of five chapters on structured products and credit derivatives not present in the first edition." --Rüdiger Frey, University of Leipzig “Since its publication in 2004, Neftci's book has become the de facto reference text for financial engineering practitioners and academics. With renewed and extended emphasis on structured products engineering, Neftci keeps the material relevant and up to date for the current state of the financial markets.” --Dan Stefanica, Baruch College
