Another motivation for investing (in equity securities) is to secure certain operating or financing arrangements with another company. This course addresses the accounting for debt and equity investments and disclosure requirements. To provide useful information, companies account for investments based on the type of security (debt or equity) and their intent with respect to the investment. The course organizes the study of investments by type of security.
