For many decades, capital markets have provided the major developed economies with critical sources of long term financing for both governments, corporates and projects relating to the development of socio-economic infrastructure. They have enormously improved the productivity of these economies.
Banks have played pivotal roles in both the development and operation of capital markets. They have facilitated investors’ participation in corporate financing via debt securities structuring, arranging and market-making, as well as providing advisory services for firms listing their equity on stock exchanges.
This comprehensive programme provides delegates with key insights into the nature and functions of capital markets, including those traded over-the-counter (OTC) as well as via exchanges. In addition to the structuring, arranging, market-making and trading activities that banks carry out, the programme also covers the key middle and back-office functions in capital markets, including the critical role of custodian banks. It will also address the key considerations for banks providing investment products, as well as the ramifications of holding securities in its Trading Book from a risk and capital adequacy perspective.
