- True probability pricing for binomial model

- Monte Carlo valuation
- Interest rate models

In addition, IFM also includes the following topics from corporate finance:
- Mean-Variance Portfolio Analysis
- Asset Pricing Models
- Market Efficiency and Behavioral Finance
- Investment Risk and Project Analysis
- Capital Structure

50% of the IFM questions are from derivatives, and the remaining 50% are from corporate finance. The exam will be offered as a CBT exam, consisting of 30 questions with a 3-hour time limit.
Thanks for the breakdown and clarification. Probably will just wait until July then.
