Course Description

The Macrostrategy course will help students to familiarise with the interactions between macroeconomics, financial markets and asset allocation decisions. It will be done through the analysis of three “crisis” study cases: the late 1990s Tech Bubble, the Global Financial Crisis/Great Recession and the ongoing rebalancing in China. Each case will illustrate the source of the crisis, the macroeconomic consequences, the impact on financial markets for the various asset classes (equities, bonds ...) and finally how these elements are transformed into asset allocation decisions for diversified portfolios.
