Altior: PSC Elective – Global Capital Markets

This practical one-day course explains the broad structure of the global financial markets and the roles played by key industry participants.  It also highlights the features of, and motivations behind, equity, debt and derivative investments, and the characteristics of the marketplaces where they are traded.  It is an invaluable course for lawyers seeking to piece together a ‘bigger picture’ of the wholesale financial marketplace.

The theoretical elements of the course will be brought to life by references to recent events and changes in the global markets and guidance on decoding the financial press.
