Learned lots of new stuff and thank you for the course content. Had difficulty at understanding VaR, but an explanation from Dr. Berrada made it more clear. In my opinion, it should be so heavy in math. And subtitles are horrible clearly made by some automated solution with no human input involved.

As previous courses part of Investment Management specialization this is a very useful and at times challenging course for those who are interested in the financial field. Kudos to all teachers and thank you Coursera for offering these materials through your platform. Much appreciated!

Investment management is knowing about which variables or factors to look at, and which factors to adjust. This course enhanced my understanding of Modern Portfolio Theory, why is it still relevant today, risk management and a lot of other topics. Looking forward to the next course

Great course with an introduction to Modern Portfolio Theory and the Capital Asset Pricing Model. These are used to device strategic and tactical asset allocations and to manage risk. The quality of the videos is fantastic. The quizzes could be a bit more challenging.

The content was very well structured, the concepts were explained very well. The team at University of Geneva is awesome - very personable in their communication style and very crisp in their conceptual delivery. All the exercises too were at a high competency level.

Mostly a well constructed course with good relevant content. Most lectures were well presented - I rather like Dr Berada's presentations. The meaning being long and short on options could have been better explained (different sides of the same contract).

It was an abundance of knowledge on basic portfolio management with few but strategic examples to illustrate its applications. I am very happy to have gained this kind of knowledge so I may have the chance to later work on portfolio management.

This course is very informative. it actually gives you both the theory and practical scenarios where the knowledge is applies. i knew relatively little about portfolio and risk management before taking this.Now i have acquired a lot.

Great review/overview of the key concepts in wealth management, portfolio theory and optimisation with practical application. Also enjoyed learning about risk management concepts and computing methods. Totally recommend
by Darrell R C•
Great presentations. Well thought out. Week four seemed weak on explaining the theory behind the more complex calculations. A little outside work made up the gap, but it was expected in the actual presentation.
by Shane C•
Excellent coverage of the topic. While a lot of materials can be covered more in-depth, this seems to be the right level for general masses/a course that is intended to be taught over the coursera platform.

This is was an incredible course. If you have a little bit of background on these topics you will be amazed by how the instructors present complex concepts in a very simple and understandable way.

This course is not that difficult. It helps understand basic portfolio theories and risk management. The letter half of this course requires some mathematics but not that difficult, i think.

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.

Check English subs! They mismatch the dialogues many times. And please, no more lectures by Dr Inex Chaieb: I got really tedious at listen to her.
