"Quite simply, he’s done it again. Building upon his previous writings from the fixed income markets, Beaumont has successfully applied his practical hands-on style to bring us a fresh cross-market perspective of bonds, equities, and currencies. Financial Engineering Principles now occupies that portion of my bookshelf reserved for texts with long shelf-life and little dust."
Senior Managing Director, Co-head of Investments, Putnam
"This book provides a sophisticated understanding of finance, using commonsense explanations that do not depend on obscure jargon or advanced-level mathematics."
Publisher, Leverage World
"Beaumont challenges us to rethink the standard tools that we use to analyze asset allocation and financial markets. The result of the challenge is to help us deal with financial innovation in new and interesting ways."
