This volume provides a thorough exposition of the theory relating to the cost of capital--a core subject in academic finance and also of genuine practical importance. Any serious attempt to value a business requires an estimate of its cost of capital. This book explains models and arguments in a way which does justice to this reasoning, while minimizing the prior knowledge of finance and maths expected of the reader. It is intended primarily for students at advanced undergraduate levels.
