December 1, 2015 - January 29, 2016

Investment Management Theory and Practice is an online course for investment professionals pursuing the prestigious CIMA certification. Candidates take this course entirely online over a 60-day period immediately preceding a CIMA certification exam testing window. There is no need to travel or spend a week out of the office as this course was built with busy schedules in mind. Participants may study at any time they choose (i.e., weekends, evenings or during the day).

This course, led by industry pioneer Andrew Lo and financial certification specialist Jim Dobbs, includes comprehensive coverage of the topics and learning objectives found in the CIMA Certification Exams Detailed Content Outline (aka: core topics list). This course has been developed to help you better understand the concepts, calculations, and applications found in the CIMA core topics list; help you prepare for and pass the MIT course exam and CIMA certification exam; and help you take your practice to the next level.

Investment Management Theory and Practice walks you through the core topics and learning objectives found in the CIMA certification curriculum line-by-line. This online course uses several learning methods to help participants succeed including: classroom lecture videos, learning modules, exercises and applications, quizzes and a sample test.

Topic coverage includes: ethics and regulation, a review of financial fundamentals (including statistics, time value of money, and economic analysis), risk management, performance measurement and analysis, traditional and alternative investments, portfolio theory and models, behavioral finance, and the investment consulting process (including client discovery, investment policy, portfolio construction and management, manager search and selection, and portfolio review).

This online course reviews financial and investment concepts, theories, models, and strategies. Participants will develop the skills and resources needed to build and manage successful investment portfolios. The faculty team help participants navigate the complex and sometimes confusing world of investment thought and application. Participants will learn to develop investment strategies and portfolios based on client goals and objectives, time horizon, and risk tolerance.

Successful completion of this course satisfies the CIMA certification education requirement.

The International Startup

December 2, 2015, 4-5 PM

Mark Harrison

Innovators are supposed to think outside the box. But today's innovators also need to think outside the country. The brightest minds, the most compelling technologies, and the best market opportunities are not always in your backyard. South Korea led the world in 100Mbit broadband adoption. The same with Europe and smart cards. And many regard Israel today as the world's cyber security leader. And that's just three examples.So where in the world are today's most disruptive innovations? How can U.S.-based startups succeed in offshore markets, or recruit the best offshore talent? And where are the hidden opportunities and obstacles for growing your startup outside the U.S.?We'll find out Tuesday, December 8th, from a panel of international tech players, deal makers, consulate professionals, and founders of small local tech companies with true international presence. Think you know what's the next big thing coming at you from over the horizon? Our December Innovation Series event may surprise you.Speakers Brittany McDonough, Manager of Business Development, Massachusetts Office of International Trade and Investment Dr. Felix Moesner, Swiss Consul & CEO, Consulate of Switzerland Ralph Verrilli, Managing Director, Madision Park Group, Former Co-founder, Chief Operating Officer & VP of Operations at VISTAGY Inc (Acquired by Siemens PLM) Thierry Weissenburger, Consul and Senior Trade Commissioner, Consulate General of Canada

Insider Trading with Incomplete Information

December 3, 2015, 4:15-5:15 PM

Rene Caldentey
Professor of Operations Management
NYU, Stern School of Management

In this talk we will discuss a continuous-time model of strategic trading with asymmetric information. The formulation builds upon the insider trading model introduced by Kyle (1985) with three important differences: (a) the fundamental value of the asset has a Bernoulli distribution, (b) this value is publicly revealed at a random (unpredictable) time and (c) the market maker is not certain that there is an insider. Assuming the market maker can shut down the market when the potential losses of liquidity traders are unbounded, we are able to explicitly construct a Markov equilibrium. In equilibrium, the market maker continuously update his beliefs about the value of the asset, but his beliefs about the presence of the insider remain constant.

Joint work with Ennio Stacchetti (NYU).
