Money Mavericks
In an increasingly competitive world, we believe it’s
quality of thinking that will give you the edge – an idea
that opens new doors, a technique that solves a
problem, or an insight that simply makes sense of it all.
The more you know, the smarter and faster you can go.
That’s why we work with the best minds in business
and finance to bring cutting-edge thinking and best
learning practice to a global market.
Under a range of leading imprints, including
Financial Times Prentice Hall, we create world-class
print publications and electronic products bringing our
readers knowledge, skills and understanding which can
be applied whether studying or at work.
