Department of Finance

Finance is about return and risk. It is concerned with achieving the best return given the level of risk or alternatively how to reduce the risk for a desired level of return. These two parameters as they are called - return and risk - are the building blocks for making investment decisions, trading decisions, financing decisions and thinking strategically.
