About this Unit
The investment, financing and risk management decisions made by individuals, firms and governments are implemented by creating and trading financial instruments in financial markets, often with the involvement of a variety of institutions. Using the Australian financial system as an illustration, Financial Institutions and Markets introduces students to the theory and functions of financial institutions and markets. Students develop an understanding of the role and functions of bank and non-bank financial institutions and of markets in equities, debt, foreign exchange and derivatives.
