PRESENTATION

The bond market has a central place in financial markets.  Most easily understood as the debt market, it is a place where government bodies and companies can finance their activities.

The financial crisis of 2008 and aftermath has demonstrated the importance of the markets and the inter-connectedness they play in the globalized world.

Given its current dynamics it is essential to have an understanding of the fixed income markets, not just for those who work in finance,  but for anyone looking to better understand global economics.

The Fixed Income MOOC aims to give you an comprehensive understanding of bonds: what are their uses? How are prices determined? What are the risks? The bond market is also the foundation of the interest rates market, so we will dive into the interest rates markets and key considerations.

This executive MOOC is recommended to those working in Finance and willing to understand the world economy, to junior traders and asset managers, junior staff in origination and syndication, salespeople, back and middle officers, IT, legal and compliance officers, internal auditors, internal controllers, senior bankers, financial divisions, corporate treasurers, corporate financing, financial divisions of local authorities.
