Most finance courses assume that markets are efficient and that securities can be issued and traded easily and at no cost.  In practice markets are more complex and there are substantial costs associated with issuing and trading securities.  This course therefore explores (i) how markets are organised; (ii) how trading is conducted in these markets; (iii) the role of different types of market participants; and (iv) how markets are regulated.  It considers how these factors influence price formation, investment returns and capital raising. 

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Discuss in depth how securities are traded in markets around the world and appreciate how this influences trading costs and liquidity;
  2. Communicate the role of regulation and how it impacts participants in financial markets;
  3. Describe in depth how price formation can be influenced by market architecture; and,
  4. Analyse the interaction between trading in secondary markets and capital raising in primary markets.
