    • Asset Management
      Advanced Investments:We begin by considering how to allocate wealth into different asset classes and investment strategies. A particular emphasis is alternative assets and on long-term investing with a coherent modeling of assets and liabilities. We then discuss performance evaluation and attribution. We cover common investment strategies based on value, profitability, investment, momentum, carry, beta, and volatility. We also cover recent developments of more complex investment products, and compare and contrast them with traditional fund structures. We finally discuss limits to arbitrage and the costs of implementing actual trading strategies
    • Finance I
      Build technical and theoretical know-how by understanding the foundations of finance, with an emphasis on applications. Discuss many of the major financial decisions corporate managers make, both within the firm and in their interactions with investors. Essential to this decision making is the process of valuation, an important focus of the course. Topics include criteria for making investment decisions, valuation of financial assets and liabilities, relations between risk and return, derivative securities (options) and mergers and acquisitions.
