Finance and Investment

This course has core elements based around the 3 main classes of capital investment activity: equity markets, fixed interest markets, and derivative markets. The corporate financial strategy module examines the institutional and decision making framework of equity investment from the perspective of the fund manager and the corporate financial manager; a similar perspective is adopted in the modules dealing with fixed interest and derivative markets. These modules introduce all the main techniques used by the modern investment professional. With these practical applications in mind, theoretical models including the use of Datastream and associated software, mathematical techniques, and spreadsheet models are integrated as appropriate. A wide range of options related to the core subjects is available, facilitating specialisation in specific areas such as taxation, corporate restructuring, risk management, or international finance; many modules provide grounding in the research skills required for a specialist dissertation in a chosen area of finance and investment.
