"The Jarrow Chatterjea chapters are far more intuitive and with more insightful examples than the text I am currently using. That is fantastic"

-Kelly Welch, University of Kansas

"Two features that I find appealing, and which I believe are unique here, are the extensive coverage of interest-rate derivatives and market-microstructurelinstitutional trading details."
-Farid Aitsahlia, University of Florida

"The Jarrow Chatterjea text goes beyond the financial product description and discusses some practical applications of the product."
-Joel Vanden, Penn State University


"In today's complex world, modern financial institutions cannot succeed without the use of derivatives for managing the varied risks of their assets and liabilities.This book was written to be the first book read on derivatives, and not the last. Our aim has been to design a book that is closely connected to real markets, examines the uses of derivatives but warns against their abuses, and presents only the necessary quantitative material in an "easily digestible form" (and no more!)."

We do not know why futures markets did not independently develop in South Asia. Futures traded in British India, but the markets were small. As derivative trades are fundamental economic transactions, other derivatives markets certainly existed.They got traded in informal, over-the-counter markets. We find several ?patterns? in the growth of derivatives markets and regulations in the lndian subcontinent when compared with those in other parts of the world.
