A pair of experts from accounting firm Rothstein Kass have helped write a new book that offers an introductory guide to the capital markets.

The book, “A Practical Guide to Capital Markets: Participants, Instruments and Compliance,” published by Thomson Reuters Westlaw, was co-written by Joe Pacello, a financial services tax principal at the firm, and Richard Bloom, national leader of trusts and estates at Rothstein Kass, along with lead author Abe Mastbaum, tax and capital markets counsel at the law firm Barton LLP.

The guide is intended as an introductory-level guide for students, new employees at asset management companies and other financial institutions, and anyone interested in financial markets and instruments.

The book addresses topics such as capital markets participants and dynamics; regulators and the scope of securities regulation; an overview of various financial products, including stocks, bonds and derivatives; pricing and arbitrage relationships; the mechanics of trading on exchanges and in the OTC markets; and tax and wealth transfer issues facing investors.
