Abstract:

Thoroughly updated, this new sixth edition focuses on Australia's financial system. It examines the financial system's three main functions; settlement, flow-of-funds and risk transfer; and provides a clear and comprehensive integrated account of the activities of Australia's financial institutions and markets.

This edition focuses on Australia's financial system. It examines the financial system's three main functions - settlement, flow-of-funds and risk transfer - and provides a clear and comprehensive integrated account of the activities of Australia's financial institutions and markets, including the risks they face and the instruments they use. The major capital and foreign exchange markets and the markets for derivatives (and their use as hedging instruments) are also discussed. It covers recent financial innovations, such as high-frequency trading in the share market and APRA's adoption of Basel II (and Basel III) - an explanation of how the RBA assesses the financial system's stability. It also includes new 'Industry Insights' and 'Practical Applications' that illustrate specific topics, such as the role of margin loans and short selling in the demise of ABC Learning. The main update for this new edition has been the development of 'Lessons from the GFC' that are designed to complemen.
