Welcome to Derivative Markets!

This course introduces students to derivative instruments, which are contracts whose values derive from prices of underlying assets and goods such as equities, currencies, debt, and commodities. The main focus is on the valuation and application of the principal derivative building blocks including futures and forward contracts, options, and swaps. Coverage is given to the market structure and to how these products are specifically used by corporations and financial institutions for controlling financial market risks. The course keeps abreast of global developments and new product innovations.
