In this subject students learn about the analyst’s role and the tools used by the analyst, including methods used to value companies and formulate an investment opinion on a company. Students analyse industry sectors and company strategies and build a financial model.
This subject is designed for students who wish to specialise in equity analysis. It builds on previously acquired skills and techniques relating to financial analysis and valuation developed in Financial Analysis and Valuation (FIN103) and Fundamentals of Asset Valuation (FIN202). These skills will be developed further as you undertake analysis of equity securities currently traded in the market.
This subject contributes to the investment management and financial analysis majors.
