Start date



This module examines the equity asset class as an example of a long term, generally risky, financial security. Since semester two specialist modules in fixed interest securities and derivatives are available, this module provides only a basic introduction to these other classes of financial instruments. The module looks at the way performance of an investment in equities is characterised, and how such investments have performed in the past. The processes of equity portfolio construction, management and performance measurement are then examined. The perspective adopted is that of the purchaser, not the issuer, of equity. This module comes under Semester one.
