The growth of capital markets over the past two decades has been accompanied by a rapid growth in share ownership among retail investors. Until the eighties, investments in equity markets were confined primarily to institutional investors and high net worth individuals. With deregulation, falling brokerage commissions, improved disclosure and an ever expanding cohort of companies that tap equity markets to mobilize funds, there has been a dramatic increase in the numbers of individual investors in equity markets. Needless to say, valuation of securities is critical to decisions to invest. This course covers valuation models used in equity markets. It will prepare students to analyse companies and thereafter determine their value.
