Portfolio Management (3208AFE)

In the past several decades, the field of portfolio management has evolved from a descriptive process to a highly formalised and quantitative area of study. The rapidly changing financial environment and the number of new instruments available have made portfolio selection and management a task which can only be carried out by persons who have been equipped with updated skills. This course studies the controversial issues and the current advances in the analysis of international capital markets, presents an optimal portfolio design methodology, and several ongoing management strategies. This course is the logical conclusion to the courses in the finance stream as it builds on the foundations of accounting, corporate finance and investment analysis to apply these concepts to their ultimate application in the design, construction and management of investment portfolios. Assessment includes a team-based project and examinations. For further information refer to the web for a copy of the Course Profile from the previous semester.
