Investment decisions take a prominent role in everyday life. We can think of investment decisions taken by institutional investors (banks, insurance companies, pension funds, mutual funds), but also of financial decisions taken by individual households (additional pension savings, savings for children education, buying a house, etc.). Investment theory is also strongly linked to risk management. The importance of sound decision making in this field has been underlined by recent experiences on financial markets, law suits involving complex financial products for retail clients, etc. The key objective of this course is to provide understanding of the pricing of different asset classes and insights into the principles of investment analysis. A framework is developed that allows one to address a variety of (at first sight) completely different investment problems in a unified way.

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) awards credits based on the ECTS system. Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
