Description: The content of this course is a microeconomic focus on the functioning and structure of financial markets and financial institutions. By the end of the course students will be able to describe how information asymmetry problems affect financial transactions and market outcomes, analyze different financial market structures, and understand how no-arbitrage concepts apply to valuation tasks. We will study how firms raise external capital to fund investment in real assets and how markets and financial intermediaries assist in this. We will learn many of the details that are assumed away in other core courses, and this class will help you see how corporate finance and investments fit together as a cohesive whole.
