FIN 480 - Introduction to Futures and Options
This is an introductory course on financial derivatives. Most financial risks are managed using derivative instruments such as options, futures and swaps. The values of these assets are derived from the values of other mainstream financial assets such as stocks, bonds, etc., hence the name. This course presents a conceptual framework for understanding the pricing mechanism associated with derivative instruments and for designing risk management strategies using the same.
