Investment Management

Module code: EC3077

Investment management focuses on how companies and firms can meet their investment goals by buying stocks to public or private investors. This module will introduce you to trading in equity markets – the meeting point for buyers and seller- and bond markets. You will take a look at the factors that need to be considered when choosing investment strategies and how firms generate returns on their investment. 

Should a company use active investment and dedicate an entire team to track and pay attention to changes in market trends, economic and political environments to time when to buy or sell stocks. Or should they not dedicate funds to whole teams rely less on investment managers decision on the risk vs reward of investment timings and focus on a more passive and safe strategy? The answers to these questions should become clear to you by the end of this module.
