Financial Derivatives

Economics 340

Usual Description

This course provides a thorough review of financial derivative contracts and their extraordinary growth in recent decades, from forwards and futures, to options, swaps, and credit derivatives. While we pay some attention to the role of derivatives in the panic of 2008, the emphasis is on how these instruments work, how they can be used to redistribute risk, and on principles and models of valuation.
