Omschrijving Asset Pricing is a course about the financial assets through which corporations can raise funds, and particularly about the valuation of these financial assets. The course first sets the scene by describing ownership and control characteristics of corporations, and how these relate to their financing. Subsequently, it elaborates on valuing financial assets. For this purpose, the time value of money, interest rates (or yields) and the valuation of bonds are discussed. Also stock valuation models will receive ample attention. In addition, modern portfolio theory and the Capital Asset Pricing Model will be introduced and used to explain expected returns. A final issue will be the valuation of financial options, using both the binomial option pricing model and the Black-Scholes option pricing model. A central theme throughout the course will be the law of one price, which dictates that equivalent investment opportunities must trade for the same price in all markets. This law will be presented as one of the corner stones of valuation.
