Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course focuses on the study of advanced investment strategies in modern financial markets using a quantitative approach.  The course is structured in two parts.  In the first part, we will cover important tools used in quantitative investment analysis such as time-series predictability, cross-sectional asset pricing, and an introduction to derivative securities.  The second part of the course uses the tools covered in the first part to study strategies including trading higher-order risk premia, intermediation constraints-based asset pricing, trading on quantifiable soft information such as textual analysis, and conclude by examining special topics of interest including high-frequency trading and hedge funds.
