Fixed Income Analysis

This course is a rigorous and analytical study of a wide range of topics in the fixed income arena. It focuses on securities (mainly bonds), and things that can look like securities (mainly loans) that promise an ongoing and consistent cash flow (hence: "fixed income"). The valuations of these things are influenced by interest rates and credit risk. The course is focused on the concepts and tools that are important to practitioners and investors who want to use these securities, whether as issuer or as investor. It includes a study of the markets in which these securities trade.

Additional Course Details: 

While the cash flows of fixed income securities are contractually specified, the valuation of bonds is particularly challenging given interest rate movements, credit risk, and embedded optionality. 

Additionally, as part of an examination of structured products, the course will examine some (very) basic elements of real estate finance, particularly the process of creating and valuing residential mortgages. (Though astute observers will note that "Mortgage Banking" has been dropped from the course title.)

Further, the course acknowledges that much of the controversy regarding the 2008 Financial Crisis and many other crises in general shared the use of leverage.  Given the fact that the use of debt can be precarious, we will take a deep dive into financial crises and examine the underlying issues regarding overusage of leverage.

The class, by its nature, requires a moderate level of quantitative skill, but more importantly it will require consistent focus. In the end, we want you to not just know about interest rates, creditworthiness, bonds, and bond markets, but we want you to know what these things mean and how you can use the information.

Topic: Financial Decisions

This course seeks to place a framework around how markets work and how humans make financial decisions. Are markets efficient and are investors rational? Or are there elements of behavioral finance at work here? Given that, the course examines rational expectations, efficient markets, and intrinsic valuation. Finance can be viewed as an exact science, mathematical at its roots and hopelessly entangled with rules and calculations. This course takes this foundation and then examines the role of psychology in financial decision making, including the cognitive and emotional issues that impact human choices in finance and investments. Can we explain why perfect market efficiency doesn’t really happen in practice? In an effort to examine and balance conflicting ideas and approaches, this course will require you to think critically and demonstrate an ability to voice opinions and debate ideas. 

Everything comes back to money in some way. It affects all of us and confuses most of us. We all think about it a little differently. Money offers up plenty of life’s lessons, like risk, confidence, success, and happiness. It’s a magnifying glass on what people do and it’s the greatest show on earth. Students should have a strong background in finance (FIN 701 & FIN 702 at a minimum) or economics to benefit from this course.
