Global Capital Markets

In this program, we will explore the concept of capital markets which we define as the issuance of financial instruments such as stock or bonds for longer term business related purposes. Capital markets are a source of financing for these business related purposes. Global capital markets supply capital to companies, industries, and nations whose long-term projects may be too risky for shorter term financing or traditional bank loans.
