The range of available investment opportunities continues to grow at an increasing rate. The ability to (a) quantify the expected return/risk properties of these different opportunities, (b) decide on the optimal allocation of investment funds across available opportunities, and (c) assess the performance of specific strategies after the fact is called applied investment management. This course is intended to provide students with an operational knowledge of applied investment management. The problems addressed are those of the managers of pension funds, endowments, private wealth accounts, mutual funds, hedge funds, and the like. A variety of quantitative techniques including simulation are used to show the actual practice of investment management. Prerequisite: MGT 431.
