Derivatives Valuation - ECFS881

This unit deals with important quantitative issues for derivatives market practitioners. The aim is to extend the student's understanding of derivatives valuation. This unit looks at key numerical techniques and applies them to value exotic, GARCH and interest rate options in cases where classical Black-Scholes assumptions are inappropriate. Teaching uses both lectures and hands-on sessions with computer software.
