And then, once we have covered the basics, we will be ready to tackle financial calculations and portfolio optimization tasks.
And it gets even better! The Finance part of this course will teach you in-demand real-world skills employers are looking for. To be a high-paid programmer, you will have to specialize in a particular area of interest. In this course, we will focus on Finance, covering many tools and techniques used by finance professionals daily:
Rate of return of stocks
Risk of stocks
Rate of return of stock portfolios
Risk of stock portfolios
Correlation between stocks
Diversifiable and non-diversifiable risk
Alpha and Beta coefficients
Measuring a regression’s explanatory power with R^2
Markowitz Efficient frontier calculation
Capital asset pricing model
Multivariate regression analysis
Monte Carlo simulations
Using Monte Carlo in a Corporate Finance context
Derivatives and type of derivatives
