Financial Economic Analysis

There is a growing demand both scholarly and professionally to understand how investments and assets are priced. Within the confines of professional activities, it is worth understanding how 'winning' portfolios are formed, based on estimates of expected returns and risk. We shall explore the relationship between both. This module aims to act as an advanced introduction to these ideas. You will gain an overview of the main concepts and applications which are used in the profession. We shall also have a light introduction to coding and look at how to apply these models using some open source software (Rstudio and Octave)
