Corporate Financial Strategy (Hardback)Ruth Bender (author)
- We can order this
The field of Corporate Finance has developed into a fairly complex one from its origins focussed on a company's business and financial needs (financing, risk management, capitalization and budgeting). Corporate Financial Strategy provides a critical introduction to the field and in doing so shows how organizations' financial strategies can be aligned with their overall business strategies.
Retaining the popular fundamentals of previous editions, the new edition brings things up to date with an array of new examples and cases, new pedagogical features such as learning objectives and suggested further reading, and includes new material on mergers and acquisitions, and valuations and forecasting.
Unlike other textbooks, Ruth Bender writes from the perspective of the firm rather than the investor. Combined with a structure driven by issues, the result is a textbook which is perfectly suited to those studying corporate finance and financial strategy at advanced undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education levels.

The last thing the world needs is yet another book on Corporate Finance. The good news is that this isn't. Ruth Bender has written by far the most readable, practical and, above all, commercial book on the subject. The fact that it's also so immensely wise throughout makes it ideal for the entrepreneur, the practitioner and the student alike.

Ruth has an excellent style as a lecturer and trainer, communicating complex subjects clearly, concisely and accessibly. In this book she has achieved that same quality, the illustration of theory through relevant and contemporary case study brings the subject to life relating it directly to real life situations.
Simon Bevis, Director of Strategy and Corporate Development. Lafarge Tarmac Ltd, UK
For anyone either taking their first steps into, or wishing to refresh their knowledge of, Corporate Financial Strategy, this book is a "must-read". Difficult concepts are made easier to understand through the clarity of presentation and use of case studies. The author's enthusiasm for her subject is clear for all to see.
