This course will deal with (a) a number of modern financial products operating in the international financial markets, (b) the essences of risk management in terms of modern hedging instruments (futures, options and swaps), securitisations, and credit derivatives, (c) the characterisation of modern financial products in the applicable legal systems and the legal risk, and (d) the objectives and impact of banking regulation focusing also on the new international standards for capital adequacy (Basel II and III).
In view of the recent financial crisis and calls for more regulation, the course will open with a short introduction to financial regulation, its objectives, form and effect. In this connection, the major risks of the recycling of money through both the banking system and the capital markets will be indentified.
This course satisfies the Constitutional Law Requirement.
