Introduction to Financial Derivatives

This is a course that covers the basics of financial derivatives. The intended audience is anyone who has an interest in the financial market. No background is required. (Please feel free to ask for more background material if I don't cover it sufficiently.) I will likely throw in some hedging ideas here and there. But most of the complex stuff should be left for a later course.

Lectures
  1. Lesson 0 - Introduction

    Define financial derivatives and introduced the idea of underlying assets and the markets derivatives trade on.

Prerequisites

None

Syllabus

The class will start this week.
