Описание программы

This course is aimed at students interested in obtaining a thorough grounding in market finance and related empirical methods. 

Aims and objectives 

This course provides the econometric techniques, such as time-series analysis, required to analyse theoretical and empirical issues in finance. It provides applications in asset pricing, investments, risk analysis and management, market microstructure, and return forecasting. 


This course is assessed by a three-hour unseen written examination.

Учебный план:

Building on concepts introduced in course FN3092 Corporate finance and course EC2020 Elements of econometrics, this course will introduce students to some widely-used models used to study and forecast financial markets and familiarize them with the properties of financial data. Such data often comes in the form of time series, and thus much of the course will use methods from time series analysis. The models to be covered include autoregressive and ARMA models, GARCH models for volatility forecasting, and models using high frequency (intra-daily) asset prices. Students completing this course will have seen and applied many of the latest models used in financial econometrics and will understand some of the key features (both positive and negative) of these models.

Topics addressed by this course are:

  • Concepts and measures of risk
  • Time-series analysis
  • Empirical features of financial asset returns
  • Market risk models
  • Models of financial market correlations
  • Forecast evaluation methods
  • Risk management
  • Asset allocation decisions
  • Market microstructure and high frequency data

This course is quantitative by nature. It aims however to investigate practical issues in the forecasting of key financial market variables and makes use of a number of real-world data sets and examples.
