Event Details


This course provides an understanding of the functioning of the financial system, placing particular emphasis on its architecture and the relevant regulatory framework within which it operates. Emphasis will be placed on the case for regulatory intervention in the financial system, the policy objectives and the measures/tools to achieve them. The knowledge acquired in this course is a prerequisite for participants wishing to understand and deepen their knowledge on the international financial system, financial regulation and financial firms.


Through this course participants will gain a thorough understanding of the framework within which financial corporations need to operate. Furthermore, particular emphasis will be placed on the development of regulatory structures in the UK, the US and in greater detail the EU (where they will be able to explore the creation and entry into operation of the European Banking Union, which constitutes a major institutional development in the field of financial stability in the European Union (the ‘EU’) as well as its three pillars (SSM, SRM, EDIS)).


Particular emphasis is also placed on international fora and the global regulatory framework for financial institutions.


The main question which the students will be equipped to answer is how the financial regulatory framework and the current developments both at the national and international level affect the functioning of financial institutions.
