Introductory Finance

  1. Nov 2, 2012 #1
    Can anyone recommend me some texts on introductory finance? I have no problem with the level of math it may require, although I am of the opinion that introductory finance texts probably won't require too much of advanced mathematics.

    Thanks much.

    What area of finance are you interested in? One area frequently linked to more fancy math is that of financial derivatives, or more general the area of quantitative risks. Check out:

    More interested in a general exposé? Check out:
    Buchanan -- An Undergraduate Introduction to Financial Mathematics.

    Although the math is, at first, not hard, you will need to know plenty of concepts of probability theory. Check out:
    Shreve - Stochastic Calculus for Finance, part I and II.
