Masterclass in International Capital Markets

Five days of intensive training

25 - 29 November 2019

Central London

You will explore the debt and equity capital markets by looking at real-life transactions from the perspective of issuers, traders, salespeople and investors. Much of the work is embedded in case studies and exercises so the course is interactive and you’ll learn by working through transactions.

The course covers both cash market transactions as well as forwards, futures, swaps and options. In addition to examining the products and the participants in the markets, you will have the opportunity to learn how the underlying concepts drive the deals that come to the markets so that you can develop a clear understanding of how the markets work and how you can most effectively use them to your
advantage. 

Return to work with a complete picture of the products, the participants, the concepts and the forces driving capital markets transactions.
