|Title||ANALYSIS STRUCTURED PRODUCTS USING EXCEL|
|Department||MASTER OF FINANCE STUDENTS ONLY - ROOM SSB N204, 416-736-5072 fax 416-736-5687|
This course will function as a hands-on research practicum in which 3-4 "live" structured products will be brought into the classroom and analyzed using the tools of financial economics. And, given the advanced (capstone) nature of the course, we will examine these structures from a variety of perspectives. Some of the questions we will address are: Who exactly manufactures them? Why are they being created? Who buys them and how do they fit into a pre-existing investment portfolio? How should they be priced/valued? What are their regulatory and tax implications? Can they be synthesized using existing securities? How profitable are they for the issuer/underwriter?
