Course Objective:

The global financial market is continuously expanding in terms of size, variety and complexity. Historically, waves of crises have hit the financial sector. The resulting losses and the depletion of real wealth have raised the necessity for efficient management of investment in such ever-expanding and intrinsically volatile market. Understanding the nature and dynamics of risks and the ways to hedge against it thus seems crucial. This course introduces its participants, in a lucid yet comprehensive and practicable way, to the complex mechanism of managing investment and risk. The course would help its takers to comprehend the theories relevant to the issues and to recognise the nature of challenges one would face in managing financial investment and risk in real world. The discussions on theories would be supplemented by practical applications using programmes like Excel or Eviews. The participants thus would learn to use different tools and techniques to solve problems using cross-section and time series data.
