Finance - Accounting and Auditing for Course Id 778

Description :

This basic course covers the preparation for investing by determining goals and objectives, learning the vehicles and indexes that may be used, and determining your loss tolerance. The different facets of the securities markets are covered as well as the various risks involved in investing and the tools used to measure those risks. One can only loan money or purchase an ownership interest in a firm. These two basic investments are examined as to the various vehicles used within each.

The decisions that are to be made are discussed. These include the risks to be taken, diversification of assets, asset allocation, whether to attempt to time the market, and whether to do all of the investing based on your own knowledge or to seek the assistance of a financial advisor. After your portfolio has been finalized and implemented do you want to periodically review it?
