The second half of this module is formed by three pillars. The first one will introduce the core principles of banking and present an overview of financial instruments, financial markets and financial institutions. The second pillar will study fundamental concepts such as value and present value, risk and term structure, bonds, interest rate determination, stock markets, market efficiency, derivatives and foreign exchange. We will study how market interest rates are determined. The third pillar will put the focus on the economic theory behind financial intermediaries. We will discuss how the financial system can mitigate problems related to asymmetric information. This part of the module will also cover bank risk management, bank runs and financial crises.
