The futures market continues to grow, but successful operation in it requires expert advice. This book aims to provide just that, giving a step-by-step guide to the use and manipulation of futures and options contracts. It also discusses the membership and obligations of individual companies, includes worked examples, contract specifications and guidelines from the Inland Revenue. It is aimed specifically at UK institutions and concerned entirely with UK markets. It is aimed primarily at all those involved in money management such as company directors, treasurers, company secretaries and finance directors. However, those companies who have seen opportunities in risk management, but lack the expertise or confidence to put this into practice should also find the book of value.
