International financial markets are front page news. From GFC litigation to the Euro sovereign debt crisis, hedge funds and rating agencies, there is no escape. This unit has a profoundly practical perspective. Key pillars of the unit are the capital markets, the loan market and the derivative markets. Within each pillar specific financial products are analysed, such as securitisation, covered bonds and hybrids in the capital markets. Specific derivative and various lending products are also assessed, both from a legal and structuring perspective. Investor litigation is also a prominent feature of the unit. Guest lecturers from the industry present to provide a broad perspective. Popular case studies and a negotiation session are included as well, making this a both challenging and exciting unit.
