Investment Finance Principles|
The course aims to develop an understanding of the application of the principles of economics to the study of financial markets, instruments, and regulations. The course emphasizes major financial institutions and methods: insurance, portfolio management, corporate management of dividends and debt, forwards and futures, options, and swaps. We will discuss the importance of human psychology in developing and utilizing financial tools as well as the difficulty of battling moral hazard. Students will work with financial data and case studies to explore the potential and limitations of financial theory in dealing with real-world problems.
