    Bruce Tuckman holds a PhD in economics from MIT and began his career as a professor of finance at New York University's Stern School of Business. Moving to the industry, he became a managing director at Salomon Brothers' Fixed Income Proprietary Trading Group; ran research groups at Credit Suisse and Lehman Brothers; and, for the Prime Services Division at Barclays Capital, was global head of research and an executive committee member. He is now the Director of Financial Markets Research at the Center for Financial Stability, a think tank in New York.

    Angel Serrat holds a PhD in finance from MIT. Prior to joining the industry, he was a member of the finance faculty at The University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business. He has published in journals including The Review of Economic Studies, The Review of Financial Studies, and Econometrica. He was an executive director of strategy groups at Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse, and later became a managing director at JPMorgan's global proprietary positioning business as a portfolio manager and head of strategy. He is currently a partner at Capula Investment Management, a fixed income asset management firm.

    Fixed income practitioners need to understand the conceptual frameworks of their field; to master its quantitative tool-kit; and to be well-versed in its cash-flow and pricing conventions. Fixed Income Securities, Third Edition by Bruce Tuckman and Angel Serrat is designed to balance these three objectives. The book presents theory without unnecessary abstraction; quantitative techniques with a minimum of mathematics; and conventions at a useful level of detail.

    The book begins with an overview of global fixed income markets and continues with the fundamentals, namely, arbitrage pricing, interest rates, risk metrics, and term structure models to price contingent claims. Subsequent chapters cover individual markets and securities: repo, rate and bond forwards and futures, interest rate and basis swaps, credit markets, fixed income options, and mortgage-backed-securities.

    Fixed Income Securities, Third Edition is full of examples, applications, and case studies. Practically every quantitative concept is illustrated through real market data. This practice-oriented approach makes the book particularly useful for the working professional.

    This third edition is a considerable revision and expansion of the second. Most examples have been updated. The chapters on fixed income options and mortgage-backed securities have been considerably expanded to include a broader range of securities and valuation methodologies. Also, three new chapters have been added: the global overview of fixed income markets; a chapter on corporate bonds and credit default swaps; and a chapter on discounting with bases, which is the foundation for the relatively recent practice of discounting swap cash flows with curves based on money market rates.
