Course goals

This course provides a unified framework for illustrating the financial markets, institutions, and instruments in a contemporary (i.e. post-crisis) context. It focuses on the structure and regulation of various markets in financial instruments, operation of banks and non-bank financial institutions, central bank operations and their effect on financial institutions, risks faced by the managers of financial institutions, and the methods, markets, and instruments for managing these risks. The course adopts a game-theoretical approach in analysing these topics, thereby financial actors are interacting each other with a certain degree of anticipation.
