Popular text simplifies financial mathematics to support student understanding

Streamlined, improved and expanded; Fundamentals of Futures and Options Markets by John C Hull, offers an appealing, logical and easy-to-grasp introduction to financial mathematics.

It simplifies the language for a less mathematically sophisticated audience and omits calculus completely, making it suitable for more courses.

The new and expanded content includes: 

  • Trends in the derivatives market and its move towards IOS discounting. 
  • LIBOR discounting.
  • New regulations concerning the clearing and trading of OTC derivatives.
  • The impact of daily settlement when futures contracts are used for hedging.


Additionally, DerivaGem Fundamentals 4.0, easy-to-use software includes two new Excel applications:

  • Options Calculator – for valuing many of the derivatives discussed in this text
  • Applications Builder – enabling users to build their own applications.
