Course description

Economics - What It Means for You, Your Clients & the Markets

After an initial overview of key economic terminology and concepts, we look at the tools that are used to manage the economy and how these influence markets and investors.

The focus will be on the impact the economy has on investment decision, businesses and securities. We will also look at topical risk factors in the market and their possible economic implications (e.g. China re-balancing, oil price volatility, Brexit, Donald Trump, ultra-low interest rates etc.). The course is designed with lots of interaction in the form of quizzes and games to ensure the learning is both interesting and memorable.
