Module Description

The Introduction to Investment and Finance module introduces the learner to the world of finances and the relevant processes in financial planning. The module builds on the students’ knowledge regarding insurance products that they had acquired in the previous modules, addressing the requirements that an adviser needs to consider before recommending an insurance product to a customer.

To achieve this, the module intends to tackle the attributes and innate risks of asset classes and the effect of the macro-environment on these asset classes. The syllabus also looks at how some investment theories are limited and how risk affects investment activity and rendition.
