Course Description

ECON 218
Financial Derivatives
Spring

This course is about a category of financial instruments called derivatives, which includes forwards, futures, and options. These instruments are called financial derivatives because their market values are derived from the values taken by more basic, underlying assets (e.g., the prices of stocks and bonds). Financial derivatives have become very popular because they allow investors to choose the amount and type of risk they face.
Offered every other year beginning 2020-21.
