Course objectives

The course provides students with an overview of global financial markets and how financial intermediaries operate. It develops knowledge about the technical and economic features of equity, fixed income, foreign exchange and credit financial instruments, in the context of different market models. The course also analyzes central banking and the conduct of monetary policy, provides a focus over the interdependence between macroeconomic factors like interest rates, FX rates, asset prices and the dynamic of transmission of monetary policy strategies to real economy through global financial markets. The last financial and economic crisis has provided evidence that although well-functioning financial markets lead to economic growth, in certain conditions they may originate point of failures with negative effects for corporates and individuals. Understanding the mechanisms of financial markets and the evolution of risk management processes have never been so important, for this reason some lectures will be dedicated to the evolution of the regulatory framework. The course will also provide an introduction to behavioral finance and market efficiency theory. Ethical issues, including ESG investments and impact-investing, will be considered as well.
