FINC71-603: Investments


Investments builds on the material presented in Managerial Finance. In the introductory Finance subject, the building blocks consisting of both application and theory were introduced. In this subject we revisit some of these concepts and explore in substantially greater detail why they are important and used today by practitioners. From the theory perspective, we focus upon asset pricing models and efficient markets, portfolio formation and management and introduce options, futures and other derivative securities. The latter topic is extended and expanded in another subject offered in the department.
