Fundamentals of Investing   

In this mostly lecture class, we’ll cover the basics of stocks, bonds, real estate, and alternative investments before moving on to address how to combine various asset classes into a diversified portfolio. Investment vehicles such as mutual funds and exchange-traded funds will also be discussed, as well as passive vs. active investing, market timing, investor behavior, socially responsible investing, and tax considerations. At the end of the class, students will have the tools either to do their own investing or to be able to evaluate what their advisor is doing. No prior investing experience required. There will be some class discussion and home assignments.
