Equity Portfolio Management
Led by Professor Narayan Naik, Equity Portfolio Management examines the latest innovations in the field of investment management. The programme is designed to keep you abreast of industry developments, deepen your knowledge of modern portfolio theory, demonstrate how it can be applied in investment management and identify the practical implications for increased portfolio performance.
The programme is structured around the cutting-edge research and case studies which illustrate the real life challenges faced by professionals in the fund management industry.
By the end of the programme you will have a sophisticated toolkit to better manage asset allocation, portfolio optimisation, risk measurement, factor models of returns, active-passive management, long-short investing, performance measurement and style analysis. Finally, you should have a good understanding of recent developments in the industry and how they are having an impact on all aspects of investment management.

- the trade-offs that come with active and passive investment strategies and how to use factor models to allocate assets
