Description

Part One:
Unless people are interested in financial markets personally or study business or finance, they have little exposure to equity and bond markets.  Even to these informed individuals, securities lending is a niche component of capital market activity.  A better understanding of markets generally and securities lending specifically would help people do their jobs better, but a course that ties the two together builds on the inter-relationship and gives learners a big step up. That’s what this course provides.  

Over the 8 hours, attendees will gain a high-level understanding of:

  • What are financial markets and what is their purpose

  • Monetary and fiscal policy

  • Equities, ETFs, ADRs, Indices, IPOs

  • Debt markets and bond fundamentals

  • Derivatives

  • The Asset Lifecycle

  • Active vs Passive investment management

  • Role of Securities Lending in Capital Markets

  • Securities lending revenue creation

  • Risk & Regulation

Building on Part One learning, these extra sessions provide an opportunity for the information to be applied at work

The additional 4 hours will provide attendees with further understanding of:

  • Overview of hedge fund strategies, short selling (including MEME stocks) and process flows

  • Collateral choices, alternatives, risks and mitigants

  • The Post-Trade management process

  • Jobs, careers and locations in securities finance
