QFinance Launches—New Online Destination for Financial Content
QFINANCE: The Ultimate Resource is an unprecedented repository of financial content housed in a print 2,200-page reference guide supported by a free online global knowledge bank (www.qfinance.com). The project is being produced by Bloomsbury Publishing, PLC (www.bloomsbury.com) in partnership with the Qatar Financial Center, an arm of the Qatar government responsible for raising the country's profile as a growing international financial hub.
The book and website contain essays by eminent economists and financial experts whose affiliations range from the London School of Economics to Goldman Sachs. More than 300 financial policymakers, Wall Street legends, and educators have contributed commentary to the inaugural edition of QFINANCE, covering every conceivable discipline and topic from asset management and sovereign risk modeling to organizational behavior, bank regulation, and the future of leveraged buyouts.
QFINANCE includes a glossary of 9,000 financial terms, along with 100 key finance ratios and pricing techniques, plus capsule summaries of the most seminal financial and business books and a crib sheet for dozens of prime financial sources, from economic forecasters to government agencies and trade associations. Additional content includes country and sector profiles, finance-related quotations, and nearly 250 practical checklists.
Material is especially geared for working financial practitioners, including CEOs and CFOs, but also risk officers, asset managers, industry analysts, compliance and operations managers, credit analysts, actuaries, and others.
