BUAD 352 Fixed Income & Derivative Sec

This course considers advanced investment vehicles employed by both, investment practitioners and corporations. These types of securities typically allow a corporation to rid itself of unwanted forms of risk (those forms of risk not directly related to their competitive expertise) and allow investors to take on these risks (for a fee in the form of investment returns.) Other times, however, these securities are merely traded by speculators, making these markets both fascinating and complex. Regardless of which side of the equation one stands on,understanding the structure, uses, and valuation of these securities will allow one to make financially advantageous decisions. Students in this course will gain a better understanding of how corporations use them to manage risk, and how investors cn use these instruments rationally. (1) Lecture: 3 hrs/wk. 1 Unit
