Financial Products - the Fundamentals

This practical, one-day workshop will provide you with baseline knowledge of the products traded in over-the-counter (OTC) financial markets, as well as related economic and regulatory issues.

It first explores the structure of Australian markets and the major drivers of supply and demand, before providing an overview of how different market sectors and their most popular products are traded. Examples and activities are included to provide realistic illustrations of how it works in practice.

The workshop assumes that attendees have no or only basic pre-existing knowledge of financial market products and operations.

What will you learn?

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to explain:

  • the financial products traded in Australia
  • your role and responsibilities in relationship to OTC financial markets
  • Treasury operations and products
  • risks associated with each operation and product
  • the interactions of different areas of operation and products.
