About this module
Laws, legislation and guidelines are essential to define the playing field for the investment professional. At the end of this module you will understand how this works, how the different legislations interact and what the underlying ethical principles and assumption choices are. These will help you perform in this seemingly complex playing field.

Study load & Format
The module will require 10 weeks of 10-12 hours of study load, including classes. This will vary according to your pre-education and work experience.
You are expected to attend in-class lectures at VU Amsterdam, which are supported by pre-readings and pre-assignments. This will serve as the basis for the overall end-case (step-by-step) and will be part of the final examination, including testing.
