      Abstract

      Table of Contents

The book starts in Part I with a short and eclectic history of financial analysis leading to the chaos that characterizes the state of financial analysis today. It is followed by a condensed summary of the main themes of this book.

We introduce the principles of unified analysis and important concepts such as the natural and investment time horizons, input and analysis elements emerge. We also draw an important distinction between static and dynamic types of analysis.

Static analysis, or more accurately liquidation view analysis, is based on the assumption that all current assets and liabilities can be sold at current market conditions without taking the evolution of future business into account. This restriction is removed in the dynamic, or going-concern, analysis where new business is also considered.

The concepts introduced in the second chapter are further developed in part II where input elements are discussed, part III which deals with analytical elements from a liquidation view perspective and part IV which addresses them from a going-concern perspective.

Finally, part V demonstrates the completeness of the system showing that all known types of financial analyses are covered and offers a solution for the current information chaos not only for individual banks and insurances but also from a global and especially regulatory perspective
