We all agree that climate change needs immediate action. And we now also have a fairly good idea of what actions need to be taken. Still, we are not sure we can collectively agree to undertake these actions at the global level.
This lecture explores what the EU has committed to do to fight climate change, and how it aims to enforce it.
Finance Class - 27 April
Do You Know Where Your Risk Is? A primer on portfolio choices
27 April 4pm CET - Click here to check your time zone
Director of BSc in Economics and Finance
Associate Professor, Department of Finance
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” This popular saying is largely employed in the finance industry to underscore the importance of diversification in portfolio choices: spread your money out over different investments.
In this Open Class we give a primer on modern portfolio theory — a breakthrough in personal and professional investing alike— which suggests that investors can do better by choosing a mix of low-risk and high-risk investments than by going entirely with low-risk opportunities. By investing in more than one asset, an investor reaps the benefits of diversification: most prominently, a reduction in the riskiness of the overall portfolio.
If you're a college or independent counselor, you're welcome to join us as auditors: please register here to follow our Open Classes.
