Course Overview

Financial markets are extremely important to the general health of an economy. With effective markets for credit and capital, borrowing and investment will be limited and the whole macro-economy can suffer. Financial markets often fail to form in command economies and in less developed economies, causing low levels of investment and low growth rates.

Financial products, including the supply of credit, mortgages, company shares and insurance, are bought and sold in primary and secondary financial markets. Financial products and securities are first issued into primary financial markets, which is where all financial products originate and where contracts are first drawn up. Secondary markets exist to enable buyers and sellers to resell their products and contracts to a third party. The most well know secondary financial market is the stock exchange, which allows trading in company shares that have been issued in the past
