Required Portfolio and Risk Management

By The Geneva Finance Research Institute via Coursera (12 Hours)

  • Overview
  1. MoocLab
    COURSE DESCRIPTION
    In this course, you will gain an understanding of the theory underlying optimal portfolio construction, the different ways portfolios are actually built in practice and how to measure and manage the risk of such portfolios.

    You will start by studying how imperfect correlation between assets leads to diversified and optimal portfolios as well as the consequences in terms of asset pricing. Then, you will learn how to shape an investor's profile and build an adequate portfolio by combining strategic and tactical asset allocations. Finally, you will have a more in-depth look at risk: its different facets and the appropriate tools and techniques to measure it, manage it and hedge it.

    Key speakers from UBS, our corporate partner, will regularly add a practical perspective on these different topics as you progress through the course.
