About the course

The Global Capital Markets e-Learning Programme consists of over 12-14 hours of self-paced multi-media online learning, collaborative exercises, assessments and learning support resources that you can do at your own pace.

The programme is designed to meet the needs of professionals looking to broaden and deepen their understanding of all areas of global capital markets and how they function.

The course provides learners with a comprehensive understanding of the principal securities, currency and derivatives markets, the fundamental drivers behind them and, in particular, their macroeconomic dynamics. In addition to providing learners with a sound introduction to the principal equity, debt and foreign exchange markets, the programme provides key insights into the role of each of these markets in the formation of capital in economies, as well as the critical role played by money and derivatives markets in the management of liquidity and risk.

The course covers the principal analytical and valuation models used in capital markets, but nonetheless retains a healthy grounding in the realities of capital markets and the evolution of securities and other market pricing.

This module looks at the principal types of derivative used in global capital markets.

After prefacing the module with a review of the conditions facing global capital markets participants in the low return / high risk world of contemporary ‘New Normal’ conditions, we look at the different dimensions of risk in capital markets, ranging from market and liquidity risk, to operational and regulatory risk and the chain reaction effects that often follow from an original crisis scenario. We also examine the measures available for risk management, including risk hedging via derivatives, liquidity and the requirement for global capital markets participants to maintain inventories of stress liquid assets to ensure survival in a crisis.

By the end of this module, you will be able to: * identify approaches used in risk management * explain the differences between risk and uncertainty * determine sources of risk and uncertainty * describe risk management approaches * identify potential hazards to investment positions * describe the differences in the nature risk over time horizons
