The financial environment in Europe is changing rapidly. Increasing integration in the EC is creating a new set of challenges and opportunities for the European business community. "Financial Management in the New Europe" is a guide to financial management under adopted and proposed EC initiatives. Topics covered include a survey of EC measures concerning corporate finance; investment patterns and decisions in a single European market; European financial institutions and markets; capital structure decisions; stockholder relations, investor information and dividend policy; volatilities and exposures in markets for stocks, bonds and foreign exchange; mergers and acquisitions; and tax laws, tax treaties and tax management. The many references to official community sources should make this book a valuable resource for practising financial managers and MBA students.
