I love this course because I was planning to start investing in the Bovespa (Sao Paulo, Brazil) following only the guides of sensational analysts. This course recommends being cautious. Thank you.

My only complaint was the assignment requiring evaluation by other students as this made the asynchronous nature of the course more synchronous and dependent on others.

I was not impressed. (And not impressed with this automatically centered text box either.) There was far too much very technical detail that no one save those working for hedge fund developers would ever use. The volume of analysis they suggest is overwhelming and impossible for the average investor, and when all is said and done, worthless. The market moves on news, rumors, scandal, etc; think Enron, Worldcom, Texaco, et al. None of the concepts presented in this course would have prevented you from investing in those companies when they were beginning or in their prime.
I'm about to become a registered investment advisor. I took this course looking for ideas to improve my recommendations. No go. This was terrible.
In addition, the presentation was presented by automatons I think. They rarely looked at us, they read flatly from the prompter. A good text to speech program could easily have replaced the "teachers".

This is an excellent course that provides detailed explanation of how investors can or should respond to monetary policy and various economic shocks. It also provides clear distinctions between portfolio construction methods and the rationale behind selecting either of them.

This course expanded my understanding of investors profiles, portafolio selection and financial crisis. It also gave me a basic understanding of behavioral finance.

The course was a revelation in that it was my first experience to behavioral finance. And what an experience! I realized for the first time that there's more to portfolio construction and investment styles than just quants. And how cognitive biases and human emotions can play a very important role in investing. A lot of the irrational decisions can be explained by these biases, and being conscious of them can make us better investors. A big thanks for the course, which is highly recommended for all investors and portfolio management firms.

I am an engineering student and didnt fulfill the pre-requisites to enroll for Investment Fund at my university. Though my Professor at the university waived them, I have taken this specialization to learn the financial basics. These courses, not only made me ready but I was a good contributor for the discussions and buy/sell decisions. The experience and examples the instructors share in the four courses are the best. You can apply directly to your trading.

Lectures given by professors especially Dr Michel Girardin were excellent and clear. I find the practical knowledge imparted by UBS guest lecturers especially interesting and should be very useful when come to constructing my portfolio; unfortunately, perhaps due to work pressure, most seem not well prepared for their presentation.

I have learned quite a lot about investment styles and types and how to use my knowledge and character into making investment decisions. I also learned to be more realistic and logical and not be caught by emotions when I make investments. And to use all type of available information before I make an investment decision.

A great course! Despite it's unimpressive-sounding title, it is quite rich in theoretical content and applications - the sections dealing with market efficiency, investor biases, financial crises and portfolio construction techniques give a broad view of the art of investing as it is. Highly recommended.

It was really interesting learning about the different biases faced by investors, along with the other topics discussed in this course. The biases part was quite beneficial since it helped me analyze what biases I have already experienced in my journey on Investopedia Simulator trading.

Continuing from the previous course, the instructors explore some key concepts of Investment Management that really redefine the way an investor thinks and acts.
Very explanatory lectures and interesting discussions from passionate and keen lecturers.

The course is wonderful and the contents are very well explained. But the average time is not real, you have to spend much more time each week (almost the double or triple) for seeing the videos and trying to understand all the complex content.
