Essential Financial Toolkit
The book The Essential Financial Toolkit: everything you always wanted to know about finance but were afraid to ask by Javier Estrada of IESE Business School, Barcelona, Spain is noteworthy because it is written with executive MBA participants in mind.
The book aims to bring those without training in finance up to speed in essential topics.
To paraphrase the book’s preface the books 10 chapters aim to be: short, engaging, easy to read, illustrated with real data, and to answer many of the questions executives would ask. The book aims to cover most essential topics: mean returns, volatility, correlation, beta, P/Es, yields, NPV (Net Present Value) and IRR (Internal Rate of Return). There is also an appendix of useful Excel Commands.
