Global Financial Markets and Instruments is a MUST. Excellent instruction! I truly appreciate the opportunity to receive this course from such a prestigious University - Rice University.
Good and succinct introduction to financial markets and instruments. Clear valuation formulas and intuitive explanation of treatment of cash-flows to define future and present values.

Great course covering aspects of global financial markets: from the market players to the instruments and the formulas used to make investment decisions and explain market behaviour.

Probably a little elementary for most people signing up for this series of classes, but it was a good review and would be a great intro for those with zero experience with investing.

Course was very advanced. It was mainly focused more on sums and real life problem solving pedagogy rather than teaching basic financial terminology and and its understanding.

1. some in video questions pop up before the concept is being introduced or covered; 2. this course gives a pretty good high-level illustration on some basic concepts
