An in-depth treatment of Australian financial and investment planning for the university student.

The Financial Services Act imposed strict educational requirements for holders of a financial services licence or an authority under one.

Modern Financial

and Investment Planning provides the knowledge necessary to meet these requirements, but at a level suitable for university presentation.

It covers the requirements for a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) as well as the material necessary to satisfy ASIC requirements for individual specialist knowledge areas.

However, the material is presented at a university level in that greater attention is paid to the intellectual underpinnings of the investment process, to integration of the knowledge provided and to significant theories about alternative approaches to investment.

Features and Benefits

      - risk and risk profiling

      - investments

      - asset valuation

      - managed fund performance

      - portfolio construction and the principles of investment.

  * A comprehensive coverage of ASIC and legal compliance issues is included in

the book.

  * Further readings, useful website addresses, a list of key concepts, revision questions and margin note definitions are just some of the pedagogy employed to make the text an effective learning resource for students.
