Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide knowledge of basic quantitative tools and classic mathematical models for the analysis and evaluation of the main economic-financial operations, of the financing contracts and investment projects, tools and models that can be used for an efficient business management. At the end of the lessons, the student must be able to correctly represent an economic and financial problem in a mathematical model, evaluating it so it takes into account the right hypotheses, the correct choice of the mathematical expressions and the correct methodology for solving the problem; therefore, the teaching aims to develop the capacity for autonomous reasoning in the analysis and interpretation of concrete problems.

Program

The course consists of 48 hours of lecture in addition to tutoring hours. The course material is available online by accessing the course web page. Although there are no formal prerequisites, for a profitable learning is recommended to pass at least the examinations of mathematics and statistics. The proposed content will be structured as follows.

1. Financial regimes. Financial operations, regime of simple interest, of capitalization several times a year, of compound interest, of commercial discount. Financial arbitrage, splitting of financial laws, spot rates, forward rates.

2. Non-elementary financial transactions. Annuities and amortization, present value and upside, net present value (NPV), implicit rate (IRR), consumer credit, NPV and APR, amortization schedules, common forms of amortization, investment returns, selection criteria for investments and loans.

3. Bonds. Classification of bonds, bonds without coupons, bonds with fixed coupons, estimation of term structure of rates. Control/immunization of/from interest rate risk: duration and convexity.

4. Portfolio selection. Investments in assets with random returns. Expected return and volatility/risk of a portfolio of assets. Risk aversion and the Markowitz model. Return and risk of a portfolio with: one random-return asset and one certain-return asset, two random-return assets, two random-return assets and one certain-return asset. Capital Allocation Line. Capital Market Line.

Examination Methods

**General guidelines**

The examination aims at verifying the deepening of the themes developed in the course, in particular the ability to perform operations with the tools provided by the course and the ability to critically analyze theoretical concepts.

The mode of verification of learning consists of a written test and an oral test.

The written test (duration: 2h) assesses the ability to:
- solve financial mathematics exercises
- explain the essential steps of the procedure in a clear manner;
- answer questions, both theoretical and practical, in a brief and precise manner;
• The result of the written test is published with the score assigned to each exercise.
• The written test is allowed the use of a form prepared by the teacher; the use of any other form of material is expressly forbidden;
• During the written test the use of a scientific calculator is allowed (and necessary); the use of any other electronic instrument is expressly forbidden.

During the tests the use of a form provided by the teacher and a calculator is allowed. It is not possible to consult other material or use computer equipment (PC, tablet, smartphone, smartwatch,...), otherwise the exam will be invalidated.

There is an intermediate test with grade that can be used as a partial exemption to the exam, as explained in the course presentation.

** Provisions in case of health emergency**

If the health emergency related to the Covid-19 pandemic persists, the teacher reserves the right to modify the exam modalities described above in order to ensure both the possibility of a distance exam and the substantial equivalence between the distance and in-person exams.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE
