Introduction to Financial Markets and the Role of Securities Lending

Time & Location

21 Sept 2021, 10:00 BST – 24 Sept 2021, 16:00 BST



About the Event

What you’ll learn:

  • Key concepts in financial markets in equities, fixed income, and asset management
  • The basics of securities lending
  • How financial markets and securities lending overlap, integrate and interface
  • The structure of securities lending; participants, stakeholder and relationships;

Who it’s for:

  • Interns and graduates that would value an explanation of financial markets and introduction to securities finance
  • Anyone in securities finance that could benefit from a course that lays a foundation in markets and bridges the gap to securities lending, explaining both separately but highlighting how they are inextricably linked


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

  • Risk & Regulation
