As cross-market bond trading has increased, it has become vital for international participants to understand the many different features that characterize the various international bond markets. Of particular interest to bond traders and investors are such factors as calculation" of prices, accrued interest, yields, and durations.

Bond Markets compares and contrasts all major bond markets with particular attention to:
• how different instruments are normally quoted
• how much accrued interest is payable by the buyer in addition to traded price
• the cost of a bond if quoted on a yield basis
• normal settlement periods
• rules for adjusting coupon rates
• how yields are quoted and calculated.

Patrick J. Brown has worked in the capital markets for over thirty years. Currently he is a Director of the International Securities Market Association (ISMA). He has been a member of the UK and European Bond Commissions for a number of years and was involved in developing the original EFFAS indices. He is the author of Constructing and Calculating Bond Indices.

PREFACE
The increase in cross market bond trading, makes it very important that participants understand the differences between market practices and as a result can compare returns on a consistent basis.
Due, at least in part, to the G30 recommendations, the advent of the Euro and increased cross-border investment, bond market practices and yield conventions are tending to converge. However, it can be seen that there is still a long way to go.
The purpose of this book is to define and compare the standard methods and conventions used in the International and many domestic bond markets for calculating prices, accrued interest, yields, durations etc. The comparison concentrates on the European bond markets, but it does include some of the other major markets.
The book incorporates, updates and extends the information contained in the ISMA Formulae for Yield and Other Calculations book (now out of print) and that in the Bond Markets Mechanics chapter of the 6th Edition of the European Bond Markets book.
