Course Brief

This course engages with one of the most prominent features of modern finance: its globalisation. Although international finance has a long history, financial markets today are international in ways that have not been seen before. Trading in equities, corporate bonds, government bonds and debt and securities of all kinds occurs across borders and on a global scale by business, all organised by global corporations.The main objective of the course is to enable you to understand some of the main characteristics of that globalised financial world. Because of the centrality of foreign exchange markets to international finance, we regard understanding foreign exchange markets as the core of that objective.
