Course Aims

This course helps you develop a way of thinking on how individuals make choices among investment alternatives. We will explore the design of optimum portfolios of securities in an uncertain environment and the measurement of their performance over time. Furthermore, the role of international markets and recent developments in investment management will also be discussed. This is not meant to be a ‘get-rich-quick’ course. It proposes solutions and techniques subjected to real-world data and particular attention will be given to the provision of lasting conceptual frameworks, useful to analyze new ideas and future challenges in the investment environment.
