Global Financial Systems

This course will examine and demystify the institutions behind what you see as “Wall Street.” We will take down the wall around “high finance” brick by brick to get a microscopic view of Investment Banks, Hedge Funds, and Private Equity. Students will be able to analyze how these groups interact with each other, as well as how they interact with sovereign governments, corporations, institutional investors, and individual investors. Topics include the 2008 Financial Crisis, IPO issuance, Mergers and Acquisitions, Hedge Funds, and Private Equity.

Prerequisite: open to students in the Fifth and Sixth Form.
