  Capital Markets

In finance, we learn about equity and debt, but for financial markets these are financial instruments, a different perspective!
Corporates need to enter the market and investors look at them for a required rate of return. These instruments have market prices which are often very different from book value and are influenced by many risk factors. To reduce the risk, they are often packaged into funds, constructed and managed by investment professionals.

- Or take it a step further for those in banking, insurance and the investment industry and learn what the impact is on positions, who is involved in the chain of events and how each player is required to act, process actions and keep the books in balance.
