Capital Markets and Investment Strategy --- Capital Markets and Investment Strategies is a course that covers the fundamentals of making sound investment decisions using modern finance theory. The course focuses primarily on equity securities. Our ultimate goal in the class is constructing a portfolio of equities that delivers the best possible expected return given the risk inherent in holding the portfolio. To that end, we will discuss ideas about how to find investment opportunities, how to assess the rewards and risks of these opportunities, how best to hold these assets in a portfolio, and how to gauge the difference in returns we should expect to receive from this portfolio from those we actually earn.
Prior to Winter 2015, this course was offered as FIN 308.
