Effective capital markets are crucial to the efficient allocation of credit and investment. To be most beneficial, capital markets must be able to function freely, rewarding strong performers and penalising those who are unable to deploy capital effectively.

The landscape where financial institutions operate will change significantly. This change will come from economic and government policies, innovation, operational restructuring, technology, and from smarter and more demanding clients.

There is particular emphasis on the impact of technology upon the capital markets, particularly banking and the financial services sector.

All terminology will be fully explained, and new financial markets initiatives explored.

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • understand the structure of global capital markets.
  • who the regulators are and how global regulation impacts the markets.
  • understand how financial services are changing as a direct result of innovation and technology.
  • understand why the banks have had to change the way they operate in the markets to service their customers.
  • understand how banks are evolving, and the rationale behind the banks new business models.
