Reviews and tips for FNCE30001

Loved this subject. Very technical but well explained by lecturer Gil Aharoni.

Seen alot of bad reviews about this subject in the past semesters, but I would like to point out that it has actually improved alot lately (SEM1 2017). The lecturer Antonio Gargano delivered each topic clearly and precisely in the simplest possible way. He only talks about the important points, and always makes sure to articulate each point in different ways and perspectives to make sure everyone understands him. I could confidently say that I have mastered each topic after listening to his lecture, with tutorial revision after that. The lecturer always tries to keep track of his teaching and he actually listens to students, and improves his lecture slides if we have complaints. Tutorials were nicely structured too, but I guess that depends on your tutor as well. I was lucky to enrol into Shirley Gu's tutorial this sem.

Investments is known to have a weirdly structured exam that made investments more miserable for students as it already is. BUT the worst part this semester was that Gil Aharoni wasn't a good lecturer. He restructured the whole subject which ended up as a disaster. Contents and examples were poorly organized and explained.

The new lecturer appears to be not good at the job. Comparing to the the University of Melbourne standard, contents are poorly explained and structured.

This subject involves calculations and theories. Most students find CAPM quite difficult and the pricing models, my advice is to do your own research and get the concept clear. Whereas for the calculations component, students struggle with the concept of duration and the important use of this. It does not just tell you how sensitive the bond price is to the change in interest rates, but it also allows you to immunise your portfolio and this is an important strategy which forces you to really understand the characteristics in bonds. So be prepared and stay on top of the 2 topics and you should be fine
