The modules I currently teach provides an overview of the different types of financial instruments, their primary characteristics and their markets. These instruments include equities, bonds, derivatives and alternative financial investments such as mutual funds, hedge funds, private equity, exchange traded funds etc. As such, the modules aim to provide students with a comprehensive overview from the perspective of a fund manager of valuation techniques for equity, bond and derivative instruments; provide a good understanding of various professionally managed funds and their investment strategies with particular attention given to the various hedge fund strategies; give insights into practical aspects of fund management through lectures/seminars by senior fund managers and the ability to  appreciate the considerable empirical research literature on issues relating to various financial instruments, portfolio strategies and in the fund management area. These modules takes existing financial instruments and their organised markets as its starting point and aims to develop not only a scholarly knowledge of contracts but also a critical ability to judge the appropriate use of each instrument type within a portfolio context.
