Investments and Portfolio Management

This module is designed to provide participants with a critical understanding of techniques used for investments and portfolio management. One of the key objectives of this module is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the practical application of modern portfolio and asset-pricing theories. The module also provides students with a unified approach to asset management and risk management. The teaching is accompanied by case studies and realistic practical examples that you will solve each week using programming software such as Eviews/R. Beyond these, participants are expected to be in position to develop and implement trading strategies, as well as to exercise in practice portfolio construction methods in a wide range of assets.
