MSGF Sample Class - Leverage, Optimal Portfolio, and Occupy Wall Street (Shanghai)

Data: 28 March, 2018 (Wed)

Venue: Shanghai International Convention Center

Why do "greedy" investors use leverage, even after repeated crises? In recent years, many governments around the world increased sovereign debt. Some central banks conducted quantitative easing to create money, which is a form of debt.

This session discusses the double edge of leverage. It explores the risk and reward of leverage to a sophisticated investor. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop to analyze an Excel example during the session.

There will be an introduction to MSGF program during the Sample Class. Prospective students who are interested in the MSGF program are welcome to attend.
