Finance Essentials for Banks Bundle – Online Course
4-8 Hours Introductory Skills
This course bundle contains two of our courses in one: Introduction to Companies, Funding & the Capital Markets & Finance Essentials for Banks, for which you can view the full programmes below.
Courses forming this bundle
This course covers the basics of financial markets and instruments; how the capital markets work and the role of key participants; how companies access the capital markets and what it means to be a listed company.
Learn about how banks make money, how they create value for their shareholders and the key concerns for bank management and regulators. You will see how the balance sheet and income statement work for a bank and you’ll understand key financial jargon and commonly used financial metrics such as ROE, cost:income ratio, leverage and net interest margin. We will also cover bank capital regulation, including risk-weighted assets, CET1 and leverage ratios and the rules for too-big-to-fail banks. And we consider current trends, the implications for profitability and the challenges facing banks.
