Great! This course will help you learn how to make a proper portfolio which optimally matched to your risk&return preference and how to manage your portfolio's risk level with financial instruments.

Definitely not for people without economical and some math knowledge, but Great content, and fully recommend for anybody looking to improve their knowledge to better take care of your portfolio!

For non-finance or statistical students, it would benefit them to have more detailed explanations of the equations used in this module, as well as more example to fully grasp the concepts and become comfortable with using the equations. I would've appreciated that in my case.

The faculty while explaining the topics are very quick apart from 1 or 2. The course is very basic and not recommended for people with moderate level of knowledge in markets. Overall a good course

The course touches briefly on all the relevant concepts but it remains at a very introductory level.
I would recommend it only for student without any previous exposure to the subjects.

The overall content is good, the teachers possessed specialized knowledge which became very beneficial for me as a student who was looking to learn about this topic.

Unfortunately, some lecturers have a very bad English pronunciation. It is not appropriate to show formulas without explanation of symbols (what is “a”, “m” etc.).

A lot of valuable information but the course is lacking exercises that can help you fully understand the concepts and start practicing on real life situations.

The math in this course was unexpected, with very little explanations for us that arent experienced in it. Also, Ines is a bit difficult to follow

the calculation of risk is too complicate to understand with a few minutes. I expect to have text below video so that I can go back and review it.

I say thank you and have a suggestion. I think this course need more materials precisely.
some topics hadn't enough sources and were very short.

It was a very useful course; however, I would prefer if the explanation during Week 4 were a bit more detailed using more examples.

This course has disappointed me. My expectations before the course (based on the first two courses in this specialization) were far better than what I actually got. I appreciate the efforts done on the course, but I am very sorry to say that watching some YouTube videos and reading practical articles on Investopedia will give anyone more understanding of portfolio allocation and risk management from a practical point of view than the pure theory presented here. I do not know if anybody reviewed the presented formulas or their explanation in week 4 from a leaner’s point of view: they suddenly exceed the whole gradual level of the specialization and do not present any practical value to a normal investor. The explanation of the efficient frontier was attractive, but again unpractical. Did the course teach me how to extract the numbers from company data to calculate an efficient frontier of a possible real-life portfolio in order to determine the best allocation? Hardly ever. In conclusion, I do not recommend this course.

The level of presenting is rather disappointing and shallow, given the connection and sponsporship of the UBS: the UBS itself had extremely useful teaching courses and materials on the subject, so it's a shame I had to waste so much time to listen to talking of no practical value.
Lots of gaps and even errors, e.g. there's no explanation or even a formula how a variance of a portfolio would be derived - and in the calc quiz there's a mistake when the covariance was replaced by correlation (omitting multiplying by the variances of both stocks); another example - no explanation of R-squared.
Nothing numerical of practical use.

Very wishy-washy presented and therefore very hard course to digest, especially Expected Shortfall and Value-at-Risk part of the course. All descriptions of formulas are squeezed in a few minutes and vaguely explained. The complete first week is also very difficult to understand without real-life examples, UBS guest speakers could make things much better here. I have to say that I am very disappointed, I've enjoyed two previous courses a lot.

A lot of formulas and theory which if attempted by the casual investor would quickly overwhelm him and reduce him to a babbling idiot with no investments.
One useful tip: Use a 20% drop in "Consumer Confidence" to warn you of an impending recession and sell everything; back into equity when the Consumer Confidence level gets back to its trigger point.

There are students from all over the world taking this course. Put better professors who know english and better pronunciation of english words along with better accent. Change your teacher and Specially that bald guy teaching Managing Risks in week 4.
