OverviewInvestment Analysis introduces students to the study of investments in financial securities. It focuses on the analysis of marketable investments, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. The primary focus is on common stocks and bonds. A significant proportion of the course is dedicated to valuing and measuring the performance of these investments. Students will also explore the environment in which these financial securities are traded, including stock exchanges, financial institutions, and the impact of taxes and inflation. Where applicable, current events in the financial markets will also be discussed.
