ECON 370 - Investment

This course provides students with a general understanding of the operation of capital markets and analytical tools of investment management. We will start with an overview of financial markets. Information on different types of financial assets and financial markets will be covered. In the second section, we will quantify the relationship between risk and returns, develop the modern portfolio theory, and introduce Capital Market Pricing Model (CAPM) and efficient market hypotheses. Techniques for optimally constructing portfolio will be introduced. Finally, we will discuss technical skills to value bonds, equity and derivatives. This course assumes that students have already completed corporate finance and remembered its content. Basic understanding in statistics (or basic calculus) is also required. Multiple assignments and exams will be Microsoft Excel-based so good skill in Excel is anticipated.
