Whether you are involved in investing in global or domestic markets, for institutions, pension-holders or private clients, this programme offers the opportunity to advance your real-world investing skills through structured study, group exercises and investment simulations. 

Course background

The last few years have seen a number of forces re-shaping the global investment management industry. Equity volatility, new fixed income products, the growth of hedge funds, commodities and real estate – to name but a few – have contributed to dramatic changes in investor preferences, investment styles and asset allocation. Traditional analytical frameworks and performance measures must now be used together with a new group of tools and metrics to interpret data, trends and performance in this new environment and for newer asset classes.

Join us for this intensive 4-day School which will give you the in-depth information you need to advance your investing skills. On completion of  the course you will be ready to implement your new skills into real-world investing activities, with the ultimate objective of increasing returns, reducing risks and attracting (and retaining) investors.
