## 21201494 - FINANCIAL MATHEMATICS

According with the educational objectives of the Degree in Economia e Gestione Aziendale (CLEGA), the course aims to set the foundations of financial evaluation, to provide the basics for the markets’ formalization and for the measurement of the value and risk of financial contracts, to introduce the evaluation of traditional insurance contracts.
At the end of the course students will have developed a solid and rigorous, both theoretical and practical, knowledge on the fundamentals of financial evaluation, on the evaluation of basic and derivative financial contracts (fixed and variable rate bonds and mortgages, interest rate swaps and standard financial options), on the foundations of insurance evaluation.
