This course will strip away the mystique of the world of finance and investment and provide you with a clear understanding of the way the financial markets work.
After you have completed the course & the practical exercises, you will be able to read the financial press & analyse financial information – confident that you have a solid foundation on which you will be able to build your knowledge of the markets, the banks, the investors & the borrowers & issuers. The course will show you how to analyse what is happening in the financial markets today & you will be able to take this skill away in order to analyse what is happening tomorrow.
