WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
This course begins with an introduction to fixed income, teaching students what fixed income is and what different types of fixed income products exist.
Then, this chapter explores the concept of interest by taking learners through content that explains what interest does, exposes them to different types of interest and teaches them how to calculate simple and compound interest.
Following this, the risks and benefits of fixed income products are explored to ensure that students understand that no element of finance is simply a one-way fast track to money. Instead, care must be taken to understand the benefits and drawbacks of a Fixed Income investment.
This course then proceeds to deepen students’ knowledge of different fixed income products by discussing more types of fixed income products available and exploring how to go about investing in these products. Finally, this course will conclude with a deep dive into bonds.
Students will end their fixed income journey in this program by getting to know examples of different bonds and the risks they carry with them as well as learning about bond rating agencies and what they evaluate. Part of this final stretch will also be learning about bond pricing and yield, as a means of bringing this course’s lesson about bonds full circle before the course wraps up.
