Syllabus for FNCE 4000 - Financial Institutions Management - Fall 2007 Dr. David M. Gross Description Understanding and evaluating risk in its various forms is arguable the most important skill in finance. This course will cover the institutional details of financial institutions (a.k.a. financial intermediaries or FIs) and develop tools to analyze, measure and manage different types of risks associated with these institutions. We will begin with a survey of FIs, concentrating on their balance sheets and discussing the roles they play in the financial environment. We will then cover models to calculate and manage the risks inherent in FIs. Learning Objectives In this course you will learn the different rolls that various financial institutions play in our economy and learn the risks inherent in the operation of these financial institutions. Next, you will learn “Value at Risk” models used to measure the market risk inherent in portfolios held by financial institutions. Next, you will learn to build credit risk models and apply these models to individual loans. Next, you will learn to assess the credit risk of portfolios of loans and bonds. Along the way, you will learn a significant amount of terminology associated with financial institutions. Contact Information
