Although this blog is devoted to all things legal and linguistic, we all know that there is a blurring of boundaries with financial topics, so I thought you might be interested in this excellent glossary over at the Financial Times newspaper.
The Financial Times Lexicon contains thousands of words and phrases selected by Financial Times editors. As well as the search/browse box, the web page includes a term of the day, and three columns divided into “Business glossary”, “Buzz Words” and “In the News”. You can also see the latest terms added, and most viewed terms.
Here are a few terms to give you a taster: business intelligence, Facebook fatigue, tail risk, cyclically adjusted PE ratio – Shiller PE, cybersecurity, long tail, equity carve-out, QDII, QFII, dead cat bounce, super angel…
Users can also suggest new terms for the glossary by submitting them to the editors.
