We are proud to present Python for Finance: Investment Fundamentals and Data Analytics – one of the most interesting and complete courses we have created so far. It took our team slightly over four months to create this course, but now, it is ready and waiting for you.
An exciting journey from A-Z.
If you are a complete beginner and you know nothing about coding, don’t worry! We will start from the very basics. The first part of the course is ideal for beginners and people who want to brush up their Python skills. And then, once we have covered the basics, we will be ready to tackle financial calculations and portfolio optimization tasks.
And it gets even better! The Finance block of this course will teach you in-demand real-world skills employers are looking for. To be a high-paid programmer, you will have to specialize in a particular area of interest. In this course, we will focus on Finance, covering many tools and techniques used by finance professionals daily:
Rate of return of stocks
Risk of stocks
Rate of return of stock portfolios
Risk of stock portfolios
Correlation between stocks
Diversifiable and non-diversifiable risk
Alpha and Beta coefficients
Measuring a regression’s explanatory power with R^2
Markowitz Efficient frontier calculation
Capital asset pricing model
Multivariate regression analysis
Monte Carlo simulations
Using Monte Carlo in a Corporate Finance context
Derivatives and type of derivatives
Applying the Black Scholes formula
Using Monte Carlo for options pricing
Using Monte Carlo for stock pricing
Everything is included! All these topics are first explained in theory and then applied in practice using Python.
Is there a better way to reinforce what you have learned in the first part of the course?
This course is great, even if you are an experienced programmer, as we will teach you a great deal about the finance theory and mechanics you would need if you start working
