Transparency in Financial Reporting A concise comparison of IFRS and US GAAP

Purchase Price

Our price: £9.98
By January 2012 all major economies, apart from the US, will provide financial reports using International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). This book sets out the key differences between IFRS and US GAAP from a practitioner's perspective, although financial analysts will also benefit from the material presented.

The financial crisis has been attributed to, among other things, a perceived lack of transparency in the financial markets. In general, transparency implies an ability to see the reported results of an entity's financial activities clearly and to use these results in making investment decisions. At question is the belief that transparency in financial reporting will lead to transparency in financial markets. Unfortunately, this link may be more subjective than most of us wish.

Ruth Ann McEwen presents an analysis of reporting issues affecting transparency under IFRS, compared with US GAAP, and suggests areas of concern for preparers and users of financial reports. Providing an invaluable guide for all accountancy professionals, the book also contains a technical analysis of major accounting issues raised by convergence, and indicates areas of interest during initial adoption of IFRS by US entities. This authoritative book provides all the essential information required for advanced practitioners and analysts at this critical juncture.

Quality Investing Owning the best companies for the long term

Purchase Price

Our price: £24.98
Quality. We all make judgments about it every day. Yet articulating a clear definition of quality in an investing context is challenging. This book addresses the challenge, and distills years of practical investing experience into a definitive account of this under-explored investment philosophy.

Finance theory has it that abnormal outcomes do not persist, that exceptional performance will soon enough become average performance. Quality investing involves seeking companies with the right attributes to overcome these forces of mean reversion and, crucially, owning these outstanding companies for the long term. This book pinpoints and explains the characteristics that increase the probability of a company prospering over time - as well as those that hinder such chances. Throughout, a series of fascinating real-life case studies illustrate the traits that signify quality, as well as some that flatter to deceive.

The authors' firm, AKO Capital, has a strong track record of finding and investing in quality companies - helping it deliver a compound annual growth rate more than double that of the market since inception. Quality Investing sheds light on the investment philosophy, processes and tough lessons that have contributed to this consistent outperformance.

Style The art of writing well (Third Edition)

Purchase Price

RRP: £10.00 Our price: £8.50 save 15%
"The best book on the art of writing that I know is F. L. Lucas's Style"
- Joseph Epstein, New Criterion, June 2011

Lost for almost forty years, Style has acquired the status of a legend. Loved by some of the greatest modern authors and acclaimed by critics, this guide to recognising and writing stylish prose was written by a Cambridge don and veteran of Bletchley Park. Imbued with a lifetime of wit and wisdom, it retains its power today.

Writing forcefully and persuasively has never mattered so much - and Style is the perfect guide for the busy, the ambitious, and the creative.

With unique authority and good humour, F. L. Lucas takes us through his ten points of effective prose style and provides a tour of some of the best (and worst) that has been written in a number of languages and literatures. Wry, perceptive and rich in quotation and anecdote, the book reads like a personal conversation on the art of writing well - with a master of the art.

Red Joker Rules The 35 Rules of Gambling (That Investors Should Know)

Purchase Price

Our price: £1.00
"Gambling is investing, and investing is gambling," says the Red Joker.

Both situations begin with a common pool of money. The pool is distributed among those who have created it on the basis of a series of events that are partly controllable. Through a mixture of skills, self-control and sheer luck, some of those who have created it will receive more than others.

There is no inherent difference between sifting through a horse's prospects of winning a race and a company's prospects of returning regular profits. There is no inherent difference in deciding whether to raise the betting on a particular hand of cards and deciding whether a property is a good or bad buy.

But there is a world of difference between the pace of gambling and the pace of investing. A gambler faces as many investment situations in a week as an investor does in a lifetime. The rules are the same, but the gambler is in a situation where he can learn the rules very quickly.

This is a book of advice from the gambler to the investor - The Red Joker Rules.

Take a bite out of the markets with the Naked Trader!

This book is for anyone who really wants to consistently make money trading shares.

Trading and investing can be tough – most fail. The human mind is to blame. It’s prone to emotion, cluttered with distractions like Twitter and social media, easily trapped by scams. But it’s possible to make money in the markets – and to do so reliably.

Robbie Burns, aka The Naked Trader, has been trading successfully from his home for 15 years – making over £2m tax-free (while eating a lot of toast and watching Game of Thrones). He’s also met and helped thousands of fellow traders at his seminars, seen every possible trading meltdown, and knows exactly what can go wrong – but also how to put it right.

In Trade Like a Shark, Robbie uses his unique firsthand experience and the real-life stories traders have shared with him to expose exactly how the human mind can play havoc with your trading. At the same time he reveals his tried-and-tested methods for overcoming it, showing how to be a shark, gobbling up money from the 'fish' who are full of fear, greed and other emotions. (And also why modelling yourself on Mr Spock can work wonders.)

If you’ve run into problems trading in the stock market – or just want to reinforce good habits – there is no better or wittier guide to the pitfalls that are out there, and some surprisingly effective ways to overcome them. It's a must-read book on trading psychology – without the jargon. Read it and take your trading to the next level now!

It took the world's greatest investor, Warren Buffett, nearly four decades to make his first $100m. The Deals of Warren Buffett - Volume 1 charts the series of investments that made up that journey.

The War Against Cash The plot to empty your wallet and own your financial future – and why you MUST fight it

Purchase Price

Our price: £6.00
We are constantly being told that we are on the cusp of a cashless society. The financial services industry would certainly like to see it that way. We are being enticed with contactless cards, mobile phone payment apps, and methods of bank transfer: all, apparently, for our convenience.

But as Ross Clark argues in this compelling new book, it is not in our interests to surrender the right to use cash. Commercial interests want us to pay electronically in order to collect valuable data on our spending habits, while governments would love us to move to cashless payments in order to control the economy in ways which suit them, not us.

If we choose to pay electronically, that is one thing, but we will regret it if we do not defend the right to pay with cash.

Followership in Action Cases and Commentaries

Purchase Price

Our price: £29.95
For years, leading management scholars have assumed the contribution of followers is an effect rather than a cause of an organization’s success. The 25 case studies and commentaries in Followership in Action from such diverse places as Canada, France, India, Malaysia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States lend further support to the argument that followership is more than an outcome of leadership. Followership in Action is a highly practical and scholarly book to which leadership scholars, practitioners, and students will actively turn to better understand and apply followership theory to everyday human resource development, management, and leadership contexts. It was written with administrators, coaches, consultants, executives, human resource professionals, academics, and support staff fully in mind. As the study of followership further escalates into the global mainstream of leadership studies, Followership in Action offers an excellent way to more proactively engage future leaders and followers in issues that they are likely to face in various organizational settings.

Money, Blood and Revolution How Darwin and the doctor of King Charles I could turn economics into a science

Purchase Price

Our price: £14.99
Economics is a broken science, living in a kind of Alice in Wonderland state believing in multiple, inconsistent, things at the same time. Prior to the financial crisis, mainstream economics argued simultaneously for small government on taxation, regulation and spending, but big government on monetary policy. After the financial crisis, economics is now arguing for more government spending and for less government spending.

The premise of this book is that the internal inconsistencies between economic theories - the apparently unresolvable debates between leading economists and the incoherent policies of our governments - are symptomatic of economics being in a crisis. Specifically, in a scientific crisis.

The good news is that, thanks to the work of scientist and philosopher Thomas Kuhn, we know what needs to be done to fix a scientific crisis. Moreover, there are two scientists in particular whose ideas could show how to do this for economics: Charles Darwin, the man who discovered evolution, and William Harvey, doctor to King Charles I and the first man to understand blood flow and the workings of the human heart.

In Money, Blood and Revolution, bestselling financial writer George Cooper explains how the ideas of Darwin and Harvey could revolutionise economics, making it more scientific and understandable, and might even reveal the true origin of economic growth and inequality.

Taking readers on a gripping tour of scientific revolution, social upheaval and the secrets of money and debt, this is an unmissable read for anyone curious to understand how the world really works - and the amazing future of economics.

Behavioural Technical Analysis An introduction to behavioural finance and its role in technical analysis

Purchase Price

RRP: £17.99 Our price: £14.39 save 20%
'Behavioural Technical Analysis' is an accessible introductory guide to how human nature impacts the markets and those who trade in them.

At its core, trading is a decision-making process based on the analysis of data and a judgement on risk and uncertainty. When humans make trading decisions their emotions, physiology and the natural qualities of the brain automatically and subconsciously play a role. Therefore, to better understand the financial markets we need to better understand the behaviour of individual investors within those markets.

Behavioural finance - the study of how human sentiment and emotion affects financial decision-making - is a means for achieving this better understanding and it is already revolutionising investment and trading. In particular, it is becoming clear that behavioural finance can help evaluate various aspects of technical analysis - and this is the unique focus of 'Behavioural Technical Analysis'.

This book provides an introduction to the six main areas of behavioural finance: dealing with complexity; how humans perceive what is around them; sense of self; aversion to risk; the impact of society and crowds; and gender. An overview is given in each case and for each key concept details are provided about how it can affect the work of technical analysts.

The author then builds on these early chapters by applying the concepts of behavioural finance to three key technical analysis techniques: study of extremes, study of trends, and support and resistance. It is shown how behavioural finance can help illuminate long observed technical price patterns and thus serve as a foundation for profitable investment and trading strategies.

This book does not presuppose any knowledge of behavioural finance or psychology, skills in mathematics or detailed trading techniques, but instead provides an outline of the key features of behavioural finance that are relevant to technical analysis and advances a new and exciting way of thinking about trading.

'Behavioural Technical Analysis' is a lucid and practical read for all those who want to understand what happens when human nature and financial markets collide - and, most importantly, how to profit from it.

Important features include:

- The theory behind systematic trading: why and when it works, and when it doesn't.

- A complete position management framework which can be adapted for your needs.

Next Generation Finance Adapting the financial services industry to changes in technology, regulation and consumer behaviour

Purchase Price

Our price: £40.00
If any good has come out of the 2007-2009 financial crisis it must be the realisation that financial services will never be the same again. Next Generation Finance - a collection of articles by experts across the spectrum of the finance industry - will open your eyes to what the future is likely to bring and illustrate the road ahead for banks, brokers, investors, and business within and outside financial services.

Among the highlights are chapters about:

- 'Recovering lost trust', which gives stunning examples of executive naivety and ignorance amidst a time of great change and suggests how things should be managed differently going forward.

- The 'Intelligent Index', which shows how potential investors are able to monitor risk and performance separately for themselves in order to decide what kind of investment vehicle will suit their investment strategy.

- The 'Digital Revolution', which looks at the four significant technological forces at play - The Cloud, Big Data, Mobile and Social - and the issues resulting from the resultant massive increase in processing power.

- 'Online Document Storage and Delivery Services', where the author explains how online storage and delivery of documents and information creates the prospect for firms to save money, improve service and retain clients.

To avoid a repeat of past crises structural change is required; Next Generation Finance will leave you informed of what shape this change is likely to take and how you can ready yourself and your business to take advantage of it. Don't be left in the wake - prepare for the next generation of finance.

- why you should buy only the very best bargains
- the essentials of constructing and managing a portfolio
- how checklists control the process and keep the value investor on track.

On the following pages, The Seven Deadly Sins are adapted to the world of multi-asset investment, revealing the all-too-common investor tendencies that the authors look to avoid in order to achieve reliable long-term performance.

Discover the spread betting rules of a host of top financial markets trading experts.

With the vast amount of information available on spread betting - whether in books, magazines, online, in videos or seminars and events - it's not easy to know where to start: How do you know who to listen to and what are the key lessons and tactics to take on board?

To help newcomers and experienced spread bettors, Harriman House has compiled this collection of essential spread betting rules - or top tips - from expert traders. The contributors are varied; including bestselling authors, education specialists, key figures at spread betting firms and technical analysts. What they all have in common a knowledge of what is required for spread betting success and real life experience of trading the markets.

In this book experts share what they consider to be the ten most important pieces of guidance that will help spread bettors to improve their profitability.

You will see that some of the experts agree on certain points, which is perhaps to be expected, but you will also notice that occasionally some of the rules contradict each other, which is possibly more surprising. The rules here are not intended to be picked up and all followed to the letter - there is no single correct approach to spread betting, or indeed any trading method. It is important to research the various ways others have been successful and then go on to find out what works best for you. This concise book gives you an excellent head start so that you can build on what winning spread bettors are already doing.

Study these rules from the best of the best and then develop your own as you take your own steps towards spread betting success.

How I Made $2 million in the Stock Market is an extraordinary book. It tells one of the most unusual success stories in the history of the stock market.

Darvas was not a stock market professional trading on inside information. He was one half of the highest paid dance team in show business, an expert cryptic crossword compiler, and a championship ping pong player. Yet he was able to make himself a millionaire several times over by his unique investment approach. Unlike other so-called systems, it worked regardless of whether the market rose or fell.

When news of Darvas's fantastic profits and methods leaked out, he was featured in Time magazine. He then was persuaded to write a book which became an instant hit, selling nearly 200,000 copies in eight weeks.

Many of the companies talked about in this book no longer exist. Many of the stocks are no longer traded. Nevertheless, the basic principles are as sound as ever.

One of the undoubted highlights of the book 'Professional Investor Rules' is the chapter by Paul Jourdan, AAA-rated fund manager and CEO of Amati Global Investors. A highly pellucid and thought-provoking piece, it takes an unflinching look at what it means to be a successful investor engaged in the "living and strangely intelligent organism" of today's financial markets - the importance of self-knowledge, the vital role of history and stories, and the limits of certainty that every investor must come to terms with.
This eBook exclusively reproduces the chapter as a standalone piece. It remains a striking and provocative piece of essential reading for every investor.
