This course is designed to help financial professionals build on the investment basics covered in their professional exams.
The content bridges the gap between that knowledge and the reality of market jargon most investors communicate in, helping you to explain important details to your clients with clarity and confidence.
This session covers the essential elements of the 'risk-free' asset in portfolios, and how they stand at the centre of understanding the relationship between other asset classes.
Building on the first session, this examines how a bond manager manages this core portfolio and the impact of the cycle on this asset class.
In a low interest rate world, core bonds provide minimal return. This session looks at how credit risk can enhance portfolio returns, and how this can be managed through a cycle.
Why are equities normally the core of an investment portfolio? What are the fundamentals that make this asset such a good bedrock for a typical long-term investor?
This session looks at different equity investing styles, active versus passive investing and why understanding the approach used by a manager is crucial to explaining returns to clients.
Completing this journey through different asset classes, this session looks at how currency (including cryptocurrency), commodities and alternatives can add to portfolio return profiles.
At the end of the course you will have a firm understanding of financial markets and investing and will feel confident discussing portfolios with clients.
Not only will you have a strong grasp of key terminology, you will be better able to learn from the jargon filled chatter on financial media and be set to gather snippets of information from all sources to knowledgeably add to your client conversations.
