This course teaches the necessary tools for a profound analysis of investments and finance. Participants first learn the basics of financial mathematics, e.g. interest rate and annuity calculus, before they are taught static and dynamic investment. The finance part focusses on bonds and the structure of interest rates. In the context of investment analysis, the course finally deals with decision making under uncertainty, portfolio theory and the Capital Asset Pricing Model.
