Among the Bankers: A Journey Into the Heart of ...

Joris Luyendijk, an investigative journalist, knew as much about banking as the average person: almost nothing. Bankers, he thought, were ruthless, competitive, bonus-obsessed sharks, irrelevant to his life. And then he was assigned to investigate the financial sector. Joris immersed himself in the City-London´s equivalent of Wall Street-for several years, speaking to over 200 people-from the competitive investment bankers and elite hedge-fund managers to downtrodden back-office staff, reviled HR managers, and those made redundant in the regular ´culls´. Breaking the strictly imposed code of secrecy and silence, these insiders spoke on record about what they actually do all day, how they see the toxic environment in which they work, and how they think the uninitiated see them. They confessed to feeling overwhelmed by the intransparency of our financial systems. They admitted that when Lehman Brothers went down in 2008 they hoarded food, put their money in gold, and prepared to evacuate their children to the countryside. They agreed that nothing has changed since the crash. A strange thing happens when you spend time among the bankers . . . you start to sympathize with them. What if the bankers themselves aren´t the real enemy? What if the truth about global finance is more sinister than that?

In the fast-paced world of investment banking, no one has been able to take the time to codify the lifeblood of their work, namely, valuation. Written by two practitioners with a combined banking experience of over fifteen years, this book meets the need of investment bankers, hedge fund managers, and private equity professionals looking for a book written by practitioners who have performed the valuation work in real world mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyout, and initial public offering situations, as well as various other deal-related and investment scenarios. Investment Banking, UNIVERSITY EDITION is a highly accessible and authoritative book written by investment bankers that explains how to perform the valuation work at the core of the financial world. This body of work builds on Rosenbaum and Pearl´s combined 30+ years of experience on a multitude of transactions, as well as input received from numerous investment bankers, investment professionals at private equity firms and hedge funds, attorneys, corporate executives, peer authors, and university professors. This book fills a noticeable gap in contemporary finance literature, which tends to focus on theory rather than practical application. It focuses on the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street--comparable companies, precedent transactions, DCF, and LBO analysis--as well as M&A analysis. The ability to perform these methodologies is especially critical for those students aspiring to gain full-time positions at investment banks, private equity firms, or hedge funds. This is the book Rosenbaum and Pearl wish had existed when we were trying to break into Wall Street. Written to reflect today´s dynamic market conditions, Investment Banking, UNIVERSITY EDITION skillfully: * Introduces students to the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street * Uses a step-by-step how-to approach for each methodology and builds a chronological knowledge base * Defines key terms, financial concepts, and processes throughout * Provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of LBOs and an organized M&A sale process * Presents new coverage of M&A buy-side analytical tools--which includes both qualitative aspects, such as buyer motivations and strategies, along with technical financial and valuation assessment tools * Includes a comprehensive merger consequences analysis, including accretion/(dilution) and balance sheet effects * Contains challenging end-of-chapter questions to reinforce concepts covered A perfect guide for those seeking to learn the fundamentals of valuation, M&A , and corporate finance used in investment banking and professional investing, this UNIVERSITY EDITION--which includes an instructor´s companion site--is an essential asset. It provides students with an invaluable education as well as a much-needed edge for gaining entry to the ultra-competitive world of professional finance.

The New Case for Gold
€ 12.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

**USA Today bestseller and Wall Street Journal business bestseller** They say John Maynard Keynes called gold a ´´barbarous relic.´´ They say there isn´t enough gold to support finance and commerce. They say the gold supply can´t increase fast enough to support world growth. They´re wrong. In this bold manifesto, bestselling author and eco­nomic commentator James Rickards steps forward to defend gold-as both an irreplaceable store of wealth and a standard for currency. Global political instability and market volatility are on the rise. Gold, always a prudent asset to own, has become the single most important wealth preserva­tion tool for banks and individuals alike. Rickards draws on historical case studies, monetary theory, and personal experience as an investor to argue that: ? The next financial collapse will be exponentially bigger than the panic of 2008. ? The time will come, sooner rather than later, when there will be panic buying and only central banks, hedge funds, and other big players will be able to buy any gold at all. ? It´s not too late to prepare ourselves as a nation: there´s always enough gold for a gold standard if we specify a stable, nondeflationary price. Providing clear instructions on how much gold to buy and where to store it, the short, provocative argu­ment in this book will change the way you look at this ´´barbarous relic´´ forever.

Befestigungsanlagen zwischen Havel un Oder in H...
€ 17.80 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Anhand archäologischer, bauhistorischer, kartographischer und historischer Quellen wird ein Katalog von 225 Befestigungen in sechs Typen vorgelegt. Die Beziehungen deutscher Burgen zu slawischen Anlagen werden ebenso betrachtet wie die Kontinuität mittelalterlicher Höfe zu jüngeren adligen Wohnhöfen oder dörfliche und bäuerliche Befestigungen. In der ersten Phase der Ostsiedlung spielten Burgen der Askanier und Wettiner, die von ca. 1150-1200 slawische Niederungsburgen [Typ 1] übernahmen, die Hauptrolle. In der zweiten Stufe ab 1200 entstanden Burgen mit hohem Ausbaugrad [2], häufig auf Anhöhen, die im 13. Jh. in Stein oder später Ziegel ausgebaut wurden. Kleine Befestigungen [3] finden sich nach 1200 v. a. im östlichen [Turmhügelburgen] und südöstlichen [Viereckwälle] Barnim. Der häufig erwähnte, aber selten nachweisbare Typ 4 [befestigte Höfe] ist z. B. durch repräsentative Plankenzäune und Fachwerktürme greifbar. Dorfbefestigungen [5] markierten mit Palisade, Wall und Graben den Rechtsbereich und schützen vor Raubtieren und dem Entlaufen von Nutztieren. Im Spätmittelalter entstanden Landwehren [6], [Wall-Hecken]Graben-Hecken, die Raubzüge bei Fehden behinderten. On the basis of archaeological, architectural, cartographical, and historical evidence a catalogue of 225 fortifications of six types has been compiled. The relations of German castles to Slavic strongholds are considered, as are the continuity from Medieval farmsteads to later mansions of the gentry, village fortifications, and rural strongholds. In the initial phase of eastward expansion, the castles of the houses of Ascania and Wettin, who took over Slavic lowland forts [type 1] from ca. A.D. 1150-1200, played the leading part. In the 2nd phase after 1200 highly elaborate castles were built, mainly on hilltops [2], and changed into stone or later brick in the 13th century. Small fortifications [3] concentrated in the eastern [motte type] and south-eastern Barnim region [square earthworks] after A.D. 1200. The frequently mentioned but rarely documented type 4 [fortified farmsteads] is attested e. g. by representative plank fences and timber framed towers. Village fortifications [5] of palisade, bank, and ditch designated juridical spheres, protected against predators, and prevented cattle going astray. In the Late Middle Ages linear earthworks [6] of ditch and hedge [+/- bank] hindered raids in the context of feuds.
