This course introduces the core tools used in modern finance and will focus on time value of money, annuities, and loan repayment. Topics include bonds, yield rates, the term structure of interest rates. We will also examine asset-liability management, the factors that influence market interest rates, and interest rate swaps.
The course covers futures, forwards, and options. Students will learn about the classic arbitrage bounds for option prices, option replication, options pricing and the binomial option pricing model. In addition, we will study the no-arbitrage pricing theory for forward contracts and discuss its relevance as an approximation to the pricing of futures contracts.
