FINANCE 363-CN : Financial Markets and Institutions


Description

The main objective of this course is for students to gain an understanding of the role of financial institutions and markets from a financial manager's perspective. Within this context, we focus on the process of financial intermediation within the economy. In particular, we consider how financial intermediaries facilitate the efficient flow of funds from savers to borrowers in such a way as to benefit the economy as a whole and the historical and regulatory development of financial institutions within the United States, comparing U.S. institutions with those in other countries. In so doing, we discover how problems facing managers of financial institutions have changed over time, thereby gaining a clearer understanding of how these institutions and markets have evolved and why. Financial managers of non-financial institutions also find this course of relevance, since they must deal with managers of financial markets and institutions on a daily basis. Since financial institutions are becoming more and more alike, the emphasis in this course is on basic principles that apply to all such institutions. Prerequisite: FINANCE 202.
