Capital Markets are markets for buying and selling equity and debt instruments. Capital markets channel savings and investment between suppliers of capital such as retail investors and institutional investors, and users of capital like businesses, government and individuals. Capital markets are vital to the functioning of an economy, since capital is a critical component for generating economic output. Capital markets include primary markets, where new stock and bond issues are sold to investors, and secondary markets, which trade existing securities.

Global Capital Markets handles the origination, structuring and underwriting of primary equities, investment-grade and high-yield bonds and syndicated loans. It has three areas:
• The Capital Markets & Treasury Solutions (CMTS)
• Equity Capital Markets (ECM)
• The Leveraged Debt Capital Markets (LDCM)
• International Monetary Fund (IMF)

Upon the completion of this module, users will be able to:
• Understand and evaluate the role of economic analysis within international business contexts and appreciate the economic underpinnings of business strategy in international settings.
• Analyse and synthesize various models of competitive analysis to assess strategic behaviour in international business.
• Apply theoretical and practical knowledge of competitive strategies in the context of globalisation, particularly major entry and exit strategies of international business.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
