    PROGRAM

    Bond markets
    This course aims at providing students with a thourogh understanding of bond markets. Other topics addressed include the appraisal of the relationship between financial and macroeconomic variables, such as the impact of monetary policy and business cycles on term structure of interest rates and bond prices.

    Dynamic asset pricing theory
    The goal of this course is to analyse asset pricing within a dynamic general equilibrium model. In particular, it focuses on the consumption-CAPM theory and stresses its difficulties in matching the empirical evidence regarding time series properties of risk premia. This course also overviews the role of imperfect information in shaping expectations and the overall efficiency of financial markets.

    Risk management
    This course is divided in three units. The aim of the first unit is to provide an understanding of risk measures for the assessment and management of financial risks: Value at Risk, Expected Shortfall, and other widely used indicators. The second unit introduces the statistical methods in risk management and stresses some of the problems in implementing such techniques, i.e. modelling the tails of the “profit and loss” distribution and modelling the volatility. Finally, the third unit looks at how these standard measures of risk are used in managing investments funds and evaluating the performance.

    Credit Risk
    This course presents the basic tools for fixed income portfolios management. The issues addressed include interest rate risk, interest rate sensitivity (duration and convexity) and semi-parametric immunization of fixed income portfolio. The course then examines the most common approaches for the quantitative Credit Risk evaluation: CreditMetrics, CreditRisk and CreditMonitor. The final part will focus on credit derivatives pricing, with special emphasis on the growing market of CDS. In addition to lectures, a number of tutorials will be held in the Computer Lab.

    Derivatives
    The course starts with a thorough analysis of standard option pricing models. With respect to this, important mathematical concepts such as stochastic processes, brownian motion, stochastic differential equations, Ito’s formula and partial differential equations are dealt with. The models range from classical binomial and Black-Scholes to more recent jump models, stochastic volatility models, local volatility models, mixture models, with an emphasis on the explanation of the empirical findings in equity derivatives (smiles) In line with the scope of FINARM, the final weeks of the course will be devoted to energy derivatives pricing: swaps (Vanilla swaps, Crack swaps etc), Caps Floor & Collar, Spread and exchange options, Path dependent options (Asian, Barrier & lookback options). The latter topic will be dealt jointly with some experts from ENI and ENEL. In addition to lectures, a number of tutorials will be held in the Computer Lab.

    Technical analysis
    This unit discusses some of the key techniques to spot trends and cycles in financial prices. Particular emphasis will be given to the analysis and testing of trading systems. In addition to lectures, a number of tutorials in the Computer Lab will be held as well (Software used: Visual Basic and Excel).

    Term structure of interest rates
    This unit builds on the course in Derivatives (it requires the knowledge of stochastic processes and arbitrage evaluation) and focuses on most common term structure derivatives (swaps, caps, swaptions, ...) and on their evaluation models, from classical one factor models (Vasicek - 1977) and to forward rate models (HJM framework) to the more recent “markets models”. Some explicit computations will be developed using “change of numeraire” techniques.
    The issue of models calibration to LIBOR data will be dealt with in depth.

    Asset management and macroeconomic analysis
    This course presents appplications of quantitative methods and macroeconomic analysis for asset allocation and risk management.
    Lectures are contributed by financial analysts working with Banca Fideuram.

    International finance
    This course overviews the financial environment facing firms from an international perspective. Topics covered include the analysis of macroeconomic factors that influence financial decisions in a global economy, determination of exchange rates, the foreign exchange market and financial instruments available for hedging exchange risk.

    Emerging markets
    The course is designed to encourage students to develop a critical understanding of the most relevant events regarding emerging markets. Attention is also paid to the analysis of the euro/dollar exchange rate movements, Latin America crisis (1980s), European crisis (1992-93), Asian crisis (1997-98), the financial crisis in Russia and the exchange rate systems in developing countries.

    Econometrics
    This course provides an extended presentation of the econometric techniques commonly used to model the main characteristics of financial time series. Throughout, the theory is complemented with a number of computer lab sessions. Software packages: E-Views and Gauss.

    Capital Markets, Institutions and Instruments
    This course gives an overview of the contemporary financial institutions and markets microstructure. It considers how capital markets work, their institutions and various financial instruments. There is a strong focus on the organization and regulation of trade in financial instruments and the course will structured around the specific case of Italy. Among the topics addressed, the course covers also a description of some characteristic financial operations, such as rights offerings and initial public offerings, and a brief overview of the role played by financial supervision institutions.
