FINC13-307: International Finance

Description

Learning to take advantage of opportunities in the global financial markets while managing the associated risks is the aim of this advanced finance subject. The primary themes include understanding the nature of international financial markets, risk management and hedging by firms with international operations, the advantages and disadvantages of the diverse sources of funds available from international financial markets and issues related to cross-border and multi-currency valuation. You will apply theoretical frameworks to analyse the macroeconomic environment of international finance and employ an array of financial instruments and tools for managing foreign exchange and country risk, raising capital in the global financial markets and valuing cross-border investments. The case method is central to the learning approach used in this subject, highlighting a number of contemporary organisations and issues in international finance. The material draws on and extends theories and concepts from previous subjects to provide an in-depth understanding of the themes noted above.
