A course that has taught me more about the "Quantitative Methods" of calculations of Optimal Asset Allocation, Regression and Descriptive Statistics regarding Portfolio management techniques.
Definitely rigorous and challenging. A great course to continue you maturation in investment management and portfolio analysis. Great resources and materials. Highly recommend this course.

The initial part was very useful and practical my main takeaway is the preference metric as one of the factors to pick a stock based on the risk tolerance. I would have loved to see more real life (excel) examples in the weeks 3 and 4 of how to build a balanced portfolio and how to re-balance it in order to perform real life investments.

I enjoyed this course and the way it was presented with videos, and the excel based exercises were very useful however I feel like some of the more challengin work was very intuitive (which I suppose was the point) but unfortunately there was not a lot of guidance on how to complete those exercises and get the honors certificate.

Interesting course, even though it covers only topics relating to investment management within a portfolio and math formulas could be better explained using more concrete examples.
But for anyone who has not a finance degree and wants to acquire knowledge in this field, it's definitely worth it!

Les notions et compétences apprises lors de cette course me serviront énormément dans ma carrière. Les supports annexes sont complexes mais très utiles pour les évaluations.
En revanche, les accents des intervenants nuisent à la compréhension du cours malgré la présence de sous-titres.

very nice, lots of useful information and the course is really good for people who have some kind of knowledge about the subject. Giving the course 4 stars just because it is too short. I would like it to include more practical assignments, examples etc.

The content and the guidance is priceless, I mean the professors and their experience is a blessing to this course yet, the problem I faced was to understand the different English accent of some tutors and had to read it properly to understand.

The course gives a clear and broad overview about the investment management industry. Recommended if you already have some foundamental knowledge in general finance and want to het more acquainted with asset management.

Great course for understanding the basics and some in-depth topics of investment management.
In the last chapters there wasn't any explanation for mistakes in the tests though which would have definetely helped.

Unfortunately, the task descriptions in the honors quizzes are very unclearly formulated, making it hard to answer and understand these tasks. Apart from that I thoroughly enjoyed this course!
von David F•
Really good and interesting content. Really nice for beginners like me. Just one bad thing : a wrong translation in a module, but nothing more. Thanks HEC, AXA IM & Coursera ! :-)

Thank you very much to all for this course. I really enjoyed the quant part and especially exercises in Excel. Would be interesting to add a quantitative recap chapter !
von Sharon S•
Key principles and overview are excellent. Technicals and quantitative aspects were too fast and detailed for me. Probably more useful for analyst level interests
von Rishi R V•
An informational course which explained some useful concepts and techniques. But it could have been more comprehensive with further examples and cases.
von Mathieu H•
Good overview of the asset management industry. Week 4 start was a little too fast on beta and alpha it was hard to follow for non initiated students.
von Muhammad A N•
Really good course which bridge the gap between finance theories and application to real life situation like portfolio management
von NGOM N•
Interesting course, an excellent introduction but need to go deeper. How about creating a specialization?
von Giovanni G•
Versatile and well structured. Offers a comprehensive and exaustive dissertation on topic.
von Giovanni B•
Not all topics were fully covered and a backgrund of financial knowledge is necessary

Too many tests

Very interesting course but also very technical. I'd rather say it is not made for someone who has no basics in 'advanced' mathematics. Nevertheless, I have learnt many useful things and I have now a great outlook on the asset management world.
