Applied Finance in R Traineeship is a self paced 4 week Industrial Training program with mentorship support.
Grow your financial skills in R and learn how to manipulate data and make better data-driven decisions.
You’ll begin this Traineeship by learning how to evaluate portfolios and value stocks using present value approaches, free cash flow, and equity and dividend discount models. Next, you’ll explore life insurance products and learn the basics of financial trading. Through interactive coding exercises, you’ll use powerful libraries, including quantmod, QRM, xts, zoo, and quantstrat, to examine and manage credit risk. You’ll then apply what you’ve learned to answer questions commonly faced by financial firms, such as how to value a fixed interest rate bond and estimate a bond’s yield. Along the way, you’ll also create GARCH models and get hands-on with real data from the US Treasury, daily Microsoft returns, and S&P 500 data. Start this track to advance your R financial skills.
