“In this book Andrew has shown he has a fundamental grasp of the problems and pitfalls associated with finxed income attribution. He clearly presents a number of different approaches to a difficult problem and, quite rightly so in my opinion, does not set out to pretend that one method is any better or any worse than any other.More of a recipe book than a prescription: it is up to the reader to decide which is most appropriate to their needs. The style is easy to read, both with and without a detailed knowledge of maths.This book deserves to take pride of place as an attribution reference.”
