Week 4 round-up

We have once again covered a lot of ground this week, exploring investment practices, investment performance and lessons from recent investment history.

By examining the ways that investment performance is assessed we have seen what has to be done in the fourth ‘review’ stage of the investment management model.

Certainly the content of this week and last week constitute the most complex in this course. If you have got to grips with the array of theories and concepts presented and how these can be applied to investment management, you are now well positioned to make informed decisions about your own investments.

Don't forget to continue with Activity 2.4 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] and check the prices for the selected companies once a week and enter their level in the Market shares tracking worksheet. Remember, you can follow these shares using the BBC Market Data tool, or by picking up a newspaper which focuses on financial markets.

Next week, we focus on the key investment issue of pension planning. This is most important investment we make in life and understanding the pensions landscape is vital.

You can now go to Week 5.
