The Data Science and Machine Learning for Asset Management Specialization has been designed to deliver a broad and comprehensive introduction to modern methods in Investment Management, with a particular emphasis on the use of data science and machine learning techniques to improve investment decisions.By the end of this specialization, you will have acquired the tools required for making sound investment decisions, with an emphasis not only on the foundational theory and underlying concepts, but also on practical applications and implementation. Instead of merely explaining the science, we help you build on that foundation in a practical manner, with an emphasis on the hands-on implementation of those ideas in the Python programming language through a series of dedicated lab sessions.

  • This digital Specialization program is meant to be self-contained and no prior knowledge or Python or portfolio analysis is assumed or required. On the other hand, learners are expected to show a good dose of enthusiasm for, and interest in, the subject of data science applied to investment management.

  • We encourage you to complete the whole series, starting with “Introduction to portfolio construction and analysis with Python” and “Advanced portfolio construction and analysis with Python”, before taking the “Python Machine-learning for investment management” course. Then,  you will be able to put  final touch on your understanding of how new data science techniques can be used in investment decisions by taking the course “Python machine-learning for investment management with alternative data sets”.

  • Upon completing the Specialization, learners will be able to build their own custom Python code and use existing Python libraries to optimize portfolios and implement sophisticated risk measurement and risk management techniques. They will also be able to use powerful machine learning techniques applied to traditional or alternative data sets to implement improvement investment decisions.
