Contenu du cours

If equity markets were completely informationally efficient all the time, risk-averse portfolio managers would be only interested in efficient risk diversification. They could just buy and hold a broad-based index that is consistent with their investment style.
By contrast, when the market vacillates between fear and greed, active portfolio managers seek to "beat the market" by skillfully identifying information that is not (totally) reflected in stock prices. They endeavor to construct portfolios that could outperform the market on a risk-adjusted basis. The critical task in this process is to forecast alpha values ahead of time, using fundamental analysis. Ultimately, the optimal risky portfolio should trade-off for alpha (extra return) against the departure from efficient diversification (extra firm-specific risk).

Évaluation

This course is assessed through a simulation for which students construct their own equity portfolio on Bloomberg, following an investment policy statement. Students extract data from various sources, including Thomson Reuters Eikon, to conduct a sound fundamental analysis. Their portfolio is shared with the Professor and they present midterm and final reports. At the end of the course, each member of the group will turn in its own equity research report, following the recommendations of the CFA (document available on Ieseg-online)
