About the book
Investment Banking: Valuation, Leveraged Buyouts, and Mergers and Acquisitions is a best-selling book worldwide, tackling valuation and investment banking.
The world of finance is constantly evolving, which means that a solid foundation and adaptive tools are needed to stay in this industry. However, since this industry works so fast, nobody had the time to concretize the corporate financier’s work, which is valuation. Joshua Rosenbaum and Joshua Pearl are two people who have done this and written it in a book to be shared with everyone else. This is the kind of book you wish you had when you break into Wall Street.
This second edition is an authoritative book that delves into the primary valuation methodologies. The book integrates a step-by-step guide on approaching each methodology. It includes different terminologies used in the financial world, as well as concepts and processes. It also provides readers a comprehensive analysis of financial updates and cites reliable data sources.
This book is a timely update to the current processes in valuation and investment banking. It walks the reader through a step by step. This book is great for people who are in business school or looking for a review book while working in finance. Following that thought, this book is not for those who know nothing about finance, since it immediately discusses fundamental topics. This book is best for a follow-up reading on certain financial processes that you already know something of and, more especially, for those who are financially experienced but still want to learn about the industry.
