Great! This course will help you learn how to make a proper portfolio which optimally matched to your risk&return preference and how to manage your portfolio's risk level with financial instruments.

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.

Another enjoyable course in the Investment Management Specialization. This one was the most technical by far. Weeks 3-4 must were challenging to follow, I had to watch them more than once. For people who don't have a background in statistics / economics I think this course will be too technical. The lecture about Basel regulation was rushed, I didn't really get the point of that lesson. All in all still a good course, I especially liked the lectures about derivatives and hedging risk using options.

Beautiful Course. It clarifies concepts and introduce new ones on options. I guess practice makes perfect, because some ideas and concepts fade too fast. Some professors are easier to follow than others. Translated text could improve. Some modules could use an uplift with users comments. This is my first course of the specialization, and I believe I will try to make the whole thing (that wasn´t my idea at first).

The course was good and further founded my knowledge of investing as an individual investor. It had helpful practical insights on which macroeconomic parameters to look out for in particualr and how computing the major finance parameters when it comes to the number crunshing.

I really liked that there were multiple instructors. Their French accent was a bit hard to understand sometimes: 'asseta-location' vs 'asset allocation'.
Good historic overview of how risk management evolved over time, and good ideas and solutions to manage risk.

Great course that covers all the basics about portfolio and risk management. The later part of the course focuses on hedging and risk calculations which are very useful. Lectures are well structured and mostly good to follow.

Great course - wish there were more examples or exercises on the more technical, math-intensive topics like VaR and ES instead of just an extended explanation of the theory behind the formulas.

Great learning in this course, however the currency risk portion could have been explained in more detail and with more patience. It was a hard topic to grasp. But, overall a very good course.

A useful module.
Some of the derivative detail is hard to remember and the more detailed risk measurement formula may benefit from a little more explanation.

at times , it is hard to catch up with the ideas conveyed
but overall , a very relevant and important subject taught in a very sensible and easy way.

Week 4 was a bit complex. Risk section could have been explained better with more real life examples to support the theory and equations taught.

Overall good, the content was really useful and updated. However the performance of all of the professors was not at the same level.

Very well course. Maybe some topics (eg. foreign currencies, derivatives) should be provided with additional material (exercises).

In general I found this course useful; however, some places of the course were not very clear to me (for instance, derivatives).

Compared to previous two courses, this one was not as engaging. Perhaps the course theory is bland .

Excellent course although I would suggest making the material in week 4 was a little less dense

It would be helpful, if VaR concepts are explained more with practical / real life scenarios.

some more examples could have been very handy wrt to the VaR, Expected Shortfall lectures.
