О курсе

In this course, you will learn what the main financial markets and their characteristics are as well as how they are linked to the economy. Our very diversified team of experts will start by teaching you how the price of stocks and bonds are computed and why they move while you will become increasingly aware of the notion of risk and why it matters when measuring an investment's performance. The focus will then move to less popular markets such as gold, emerging markets, real estate, hedge funds and private markets. These will be analyzed with an emphasis on their particular risks and return opportunities as well as how they can help in building efficient portfolios. Finally, the policies of central banks and their impact on financial markets will be presented to you along with the link between the economy and the price of financial assets. All along these different steps, experts from UBS, our corporate partner, will show you how the concepts you just acquired are effectively applied in a leading global bank. This focus on practicality means you will not only understand what is going on in global financial markets but also start to figure out how you can use them to achieve financial goals, be it a client's or your own. Course Director and main teaching contributor: Dr. Michel Girardin, Lecturer in Macro-Finance, University of Geneva...

Good fundamentals. Yield curve discussion in lecture 4 was complicated. Introduction to '4 Pillars of Investing by Bernstein' very good

The material is great to learn, however, it can all just be a little too much sometimes given all the different formulas and concepts.

The evaluation is very confusing. In addition, when graded, it gives different "correct" answers overtime the test is presented.

Highly recommend this course, but would be better if the course was updated, all the scenarios depicted in this are from 2005

A good wholesome understanding of financial markets. Though I think practical application is something missing in the course.

quite hard to gasp the content. maybe it's just me, but more formal math would significantly simplfy the material.

Pretty good videos with very illustrative examples. The Level of some of the readings was a bit too high.
