This unit is designed to further students’ understanding of futures and options contracts and their use in managing risk. It builds upon material covered in FINM1001. FINM2002 provides an overview of options, futures, forwards and swaps on a range of underlying assets/commodities including stocks, interest rates, foreign exchange as well as more exotic instruments such as weather and electricity derivatives. The models used for pricing these instruments will be covered as well as techniques used for risk management.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Articulate options, futures, forwards, and swaps on a range of underlying assets/commodities.
- Explain and be able to utilise option trading strategies.
- Critically analyse the types of assets/commodities used including stocks, interest rates, foreign exchange as well as exotic instruments and weather and electricity derivatives.
- Use various models to price forward, futures, swap and option contracts.
- Use these pricing models for risk management.
- Collect, process, interpret and communicate the outcomes of financial problems.
