Finance Fundamentals Trainee

Finance Fundamentals in R Traineeship is a self paced 4 week Industrial Training program with mentorship support.

Program Description

Learn the finance and R fundamentals you need to make data-driven financial decisions. There’s no prior coding experience needed. In this Traineeship, you’ll learn about fundamental R concepts including vectors, matrices, lists, and functions, before discovering how to work with time series data to evaluate index performance. Throughout the track, you’ll work with popular R packages, including xts, zoo, tidyquant, PerformanceAnalytics, and PortfolioAnalytics, as you learn to import and manage financial data from different sources, including Excel files and from the web. Hands-on exercises will reinforce your new skills, as you work with real-world data, including Apple stock data, Microsoft, investment portfolios, and data from the S&P 500. By the end of the track, you’ll be ready to navigate the world of finance using R—having learned how to work with investment portfolios, calculate measures of risk, and calculate an optimal portfolio based on risk and return.
