Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course Asset Pricing I is the first part of a sequence on asset pricing. Asset Pricing I analyses the determinants of asset prices in a complete market setting under symmetric information. Asset Pricing II extends the analysis to the empirically more relevant incomplete market setting with asymmetric information and liquidity risk.

Accordingly, this course lays the foundations for a deeper understanding of the determinants of asset prices. It discusses the role of cash-flow expectations and various notions of risk on the prices of traded securities.

The role of informational asymmetries on market participation, liquidity and, hence, asset prices will be the topic of the advanced course Asset Prices II.

While the course is mainly theoretical, all its motivation as well as the validation of the theories developed in this course is empirical and data-driven.
