The valuation of investments, the valuation of bonds, equity and derivatives as well as cash flows and financial indicators are the cornerstones of Financial Analysis. These items are encountered in the daily investment activity and thus provide the basis for understanding the financial environment. In this course the aforementioned notions are analyzed with emphasis on financial assets, which are simultaneously investment options for an investor but also financing means for an enterprise. As the valuation of financial assets is based on the concept of present value, the concepts of capitalization and annuities are reminded.
