Global Capital Markets

Course Overview:
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.

After completing this course, participants should be able to:

  • Define capital markets and recognize the major sources and users of global capital
  • Determine how companies and governments raise money in the global capital markets
  • Identify examples of developed, emerging, and frontier markets
  • Recognize the trends of globalization and ways investors can invest internationally
