I am self taught in Python and have an industry background in Finance. This course was a good connector/provided additional insight on using Python to process portfolio performance and data analysis.
Awesome Course, Great instructors that give a nice balance of theory and practice, the practice is very hands-on and will help you understand the theory and give you useful tools from the first week.

This is a high quality course with top material included!
The skills are relevant for the industry.
The course is also interesting and fun to take.
I have only two comments for thought:
Instead of copy pasting in some videos, a more thorough explanation would be nice and
some strategies require essentially continuous rebalancing something that cannot happen in practice. So it would be best if strategies allowed for less frequent rebalancing.
We can of course build our strategies to allow for less frequent rebal, I am just saying!

Nice course that brings to life real-world applications of Python in the context of institutional investor's portfolios. Requires a background in investment management basics (e.g. discount rates, portfolio analysis) and is ok for Python novices, like me. I found the course especially interesting in the last part, when LDI modelling via Python was presented. At the same time, the Python part feels a bit rushed in this last chapter, although a lot has to do with my beginner-level knowledge of this programming platform.

This is an excellent course for the finance professional who has a deep and genuine interest in both Python (for Machine Learning) and Portfolio Analysis. Don't take it if you can't check off both because it is rigorous in both regards.
The instructor does especially well in describing the Python code that he is using: in great line-by-line detail for much of the Python notebooks. He falls a little short on providing full Portfolio Finance Theory, ...which is why I provided 4 stars, not 5.

The instructors have done a great job at helping learners gain hands on experience with rather sophisticated investment management techniques. However, illustrating the practicalities of portfolio construction and insurance came at the expense of only brushing on the theory behind some of the notions introduced. Maybe it was meant to be this way but I would have loved to see more analysis of CPPI and the pricing of ZC bonds under CIR model.

I think this is a good course! THe thing that I like the most ist that Vijay gets stuff wrong live, which is in line with your experience as a coder.
There are two things that I don't really like. You almost need a pre-course to know how to manage Python. And the exams are super difficult, particularly the coding related questions. Probably intermediate homeworks would be in order.
