Course Highlight

With the uncertainty of today's financial markets, investors often ask themselves where they can invest to protect themselves against market volatility.

Although there are no simple or guaranteed solutions to this problem, investment funds are interesting financial instruments that give investors an interesting choice of investments regardless of how markets perform.

Investing in funds, however, can be complex primarily because of the large number of funds (135,000 funds in the world) from which investors can choose. The objective of this 2 day course is to provide participants with a good understanding of investment funds, their characteristics and their performance to help investors and financial professionals select the funds that best suit their needs.

  • Creating a fund, applying the fund management process, developing fund strategies
  • Distinguishing between funds based on domicile, asset types, structure
  • Understanding fund markets, their players and their operations

Referenzen

*** Very good course, teacher, and approach. Material available on-line prior to the course + request to the participants about their expectations from the course.

*** Congratulations! Very well done. Nothing more to add.

*** I really appreciated the empathy and skills of the lecturer Bruno Bosch. Also, the size of the group (7 persons) was perfect to have the necessary interactivity throughout the course.

*** I strongly recommended this training to my colleagues as I found it very useful.

*** It was exceptional to have a lecturer with profound knowledge on the topic so that the level of discussion could go further than the simple basics of valuation.
