Thanks Dr. O!

Excellent!

Completely practical and objective, this course provides the mathematical basis for obtaining the data necessary to implement a financial plan or strategy. Understanding the numbers, nothing is clearer and more convincing.

Despite being focused on US and EUROPE markets what, particulary, made the compreension of the course a bit harder considering i'm from latin america, Brazil; the course allowed me to have a great approach on global markets and financial instruments from the rest of the world. Knowing this kind of stuff allows me to agregate value to my clients negotiations in terms of insurance risk.

Great overview of financial markets and tools. There is some basic investment math in the first part of the class that can become tedious but is good to at least see in action. The more complex investment topics are only defined and summarized, which was exactly what I was looking for.
