TOP REVIEWS FROM MEETING INVESTORS' GOALS
Its really helpful for me to understand process to construct a portfolio with various investment style, structure and distinguish exactly characteristic of value and growth
Fantastic! This course will help you to learn how to deal with your customer, how to built an investment strategy and also learn about past crisis.
My only complaint was the assignment requiring evaluation by other students as this made the asynchronous nature of the course more synchronous and dependent on others.
Great course! I like how it explained basic ideas of setting up an investment portfolio. And how it went into detail, such as thematic investing.
