This course presents the main tools for designing and evaluating investment strategies. First, we review the main asset classes and investment instruments. After describing the main asset classes, investment instruments, and portfolio performance measures, we focus on the critical aspects of sustainable financial investing. Next, we review the elements of investment strategies, and the course ends with some suggestions for personal portfolio choice. All the material and the readings are in English. Practice sessions by groups are based on MATLAB Live Scripts. The students must present a final individual project developed using MATLAB.
