Book review – Dictionary of financial markets

dictfinThere are some books on the shelf that you consult regularly, and some that just sit there. The Dictionnaire des marchés financiers is one of the former. It lists financial terms in French, English, Dutch, Spanish and Italian.

Although published in 2008, quite a while ago, it remains a comprehensive collection of terms. Since the financial markets are a fast-moving world, one might not always find the very latest term, but then again the documents I handle are often not current.

You can see for yourselves, as the publisher’s website makes available several extracts: parts of the multilingual index; a full extract from the letter A to show how entries are laid out; conceptual diagrams of markets and instruments; as well as the bibliography.

To download the extracts (click on the tab “Extraits“), and find out more about the book, see the website of the publisher De Boeck, where you will also find information about the authors’ extensive qualifications.
