Course Summary

Alongside banks, a growing number of both financial firms (e.g. hedge funds) and non-financial firms (e.g. utilities) have trading arms which execute orders in the markets and deal on behalf of either the firm or outside clients. Therefore, knowledge of trading global markets is a prerequisite for your career in trading, risk management or compliance.

On this course, we prepare you for a successful career in finance and financial services by covering in-depth finance, statistical modelling and trading skills. Taught by industry experts, we offer a mix of classroom-based instruction, case study and practical trading exercise where you trade on real-time simulated global markets through the use of industry-strength proprietary trading software in our specialist trading lab.

You master areas including:

  • trading strategies
  • risk and money management
  • trader analytics
  • portfolio management and empirical methods in finance

You are given exposure to practical trading in a wide range of markets, including equities, FX, commodities and bonds.
