This course is designed to familiarise students with the components of the financial system as well as to introduce them to the three basic ideas underpinning finance, namely the time value of money, diversification and arbitrage. In doing so, the course provides students with introductory exposure to financial transactions, institutions and markets including money markets, stock markets, foreign exchange and derivative markets and the instruments traded therein. It also provides students with a solid foundation for later studies in finance.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Explain basic financial transactions, institutions and markets, including money markets, stock markets, foreign exchange, derivatives markets and contracts.
- Discuss the concept of time value of money and calculate the value of cash flows relating to a number of financial instruments.
- Explain the concept of diversification, including the risk and return relationship and calculate optimal weights for a portfolio comprising of two financial assets.
- Discuss concepts of arbitrage, and utilise derivatives for risk management purposes.
- Typical assessment may include, but is not restricted to: exams, assignments, quizzes, presentations and other assessment as appropriate (100) [LO 1,2,3,4]
