Acerca del Curso

In this course, you’ll learn the foundational theories behind robo-advising, crowdfunding, and marketplace lending, and how to apply these theories to optimize your investments. Professor David Musto of the Wharton School has designed this course to help you gain a practical understanding of the theoretical frameworks of Modern Portfolio Theory and Financial Technology. You’ll learn how to apply the ideas behind robo-advising and crowdfunding to better assess and leverage a more optimized portfolio while managing risks. You’ll also explore the current consumer credit landscape and learn how to utilize financial technologies in your business. You’ll analyze real-life examples by studying the cases of Square and CommonBond. By the end of this course, you’ll have honed your skills in calculating risks and returns in robo-advising and crowdfunding, and be able to assess the value of marketplace lending to achieve better returns on your investments. No prerequisites are required for this course, although "Fintech: Foundations, Payments, and Regulations" and "Cryptocurrency and Blockchain: An Introduction to Digital Currencies" from Wharton's Fintech Specialization are recommended....

Very informative course, with good examples. I particularly enjoyed the video of the Square executive. I just wish David Mutso's signature was somewhat legible on the course certificate.

This course on Crowdfunding is taught by Professor Dr. David Musto, Chair of the Finance Department at Wharton School. The professor is very clear and to the point. He makes sure his lectures are not confusing and not too technical for a non-finance/non-math major. His objective is to clarify the basics and underlying scope of the crowdfunding sector. The subject is interesting and the faculty is outstanding.

Excellent course from an erudite Professor. Some of the details like how the Jobs Act influenced crowdfunding, how the consumer lending sector is ripe for disruption through Fintech, are very useful. However, another sector which could find mention in this list is the education industry. Coursera and Edtech are also fintechs in a sense and India has its youngest billionaire from a very similar startup.

Very useful insights with background clearly explained,, and governance aspects clarified. Will be helpful if non-US examples and framework - especially in Asia & Europe, Australia are covered too as the course seems to be focused purely on the US market

This was a well presented and researched course giving an overview of the lending/crowdfunding/robo-advisory space. As part of the specialisation it serves its role well...not sure if it has that much value as a single course.

I would've liked more practical cases like the ones in the Week 4, but in the whole specialization.

The course dives into the different ways of obtaining and providing funding in today's financial scene, it not only provides an overview but also addresses the challenges in this space.

Covers the breadth of the emerging fintech industry well, but specific details or references to algorithms and techniques used in each of these sectors would have been interesting.

Although the course provides good insights, however it does not deep delve into the actual outline mentioned, it talks more about the traditional finance concepts and then concluded like "Robo advising exists and might be able to do say XYZ' instead of saying what its actually doing and how can it be capable of expanding more.

Even for the case studies part, Square's experience was short, crisp and more insightful while commonbond's case is more descriptive with less insights and more generic stuff which is ideally of no use.

this course gives me a overall knowledge on lending and other modern lending alternatives. But it is so few case study and visibility to show how the flow work. It will be easy to catch up and attactive.

Pprofessor was hard to follow with all the "ok" and fumbled words. Tried reading along and it reads the same as he spoke. This was hard to watch therefore turned into me taking quiz multiple times
