A very interesting subject which looks at the mathematics behind a lot of investment analysis formulas and theories. Key tip is to use the Youtube video step by step explanations. They will go a long way in helping you understand the subject.

Contents are useful. Lecturers are useful. However, the assignment can be a bit tricky without any Excel knowledge. Also, need to understand matrices to to some sort of calculation for portfolio return and risk.

Great course giving you intro into what portfolio management is like. You study basic theory of investment like CAPM, Markowitz portfolio optimisation. Interesting content if you're into finance. However, there is a lot of math (calculus) going in this course so make sure you brush up math skills so as not to fall behind.

Lecturer was really nice, and subject was ok. Wasn't something I enjoyed that much, very maths based.

Very core and important concepts in portfolio construction and various other portfolio tools. It also beautifully demonstrates how mathematics plays in investment theory and lay down a foundation for quantitative finance.
