TOP REVIEWS FROM PORTFOLIO AND RISK MANAGEMENT
Thoroughly engaging presentation of a topic that was very much esoteric to me previously. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for insight into portfolio and risk management.
This course is a bit difficult for me because I have no background in all the topics, but the instructors were able to discuss all these very well.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Lecturers were clear and easy to understand. I feel this course would be a great aid for anyone pursuing a career in financial industries.
Excellent course. I would suggest giving numerical examples in the lessons related to CVaR and ES, like it was done for currency hedging. Otherwise excellent material.
