Professor of Financial Economics
The Investments & Portfolio Management module has been my favourite so far. The lecturer Professor Robert Kosowski brings a wealth of experience to the module; both in academia and working as a consultant in the industry. I’ve spent a good part of my career building trading analytics platforms, but it wasn’t until this module I could really put myself in the mindset of an investor and know what kind of market signals to look out for, how to construct a diversified portfolio, and understand other fundamental concepts in quantitative finance.
