Courses In This Course

The world has changed dramatically in recent years, with much of the opportunity for growth and investment now lying outside of the United States, Europe, and other developed markets. Emerging markets, most notably the ‘BRIC’ economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China, have already demonstrated rapid growth – and further growth is predicted in the years to come as these markets strengthen their global positions and drive the world economy.

 

This course is designed for financial market professionals who need to better understand the fundamentals of emerging markets, as well as the opportunities and risks associated with these economies as they integrate with the global marketplace.

Learner Profile

  •    EMERGING MARKETS - AN INTRODUCTION

    Overview

    Over the past generation or so, emerging markets, most notably the BRIC economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China, have grown rapidly – growth that is projected to continue in the years to come as these markets strengthen their global positions and drive the world economy. China is already the world’s largest exporter and in 2010 overtook Japan as the world’s second largest economy after the United States.

     

    Although astute investors can earn impressive returns on emerging market investments, this is not an area for the faint-hearted. Significant market volatility, frequent political crises, currency risk, and lack of regulatory oversight, are just some of the risks faced by investors in these markets.

     

    This course outlines the development of emerging markets and how they differ from developed economies. The key emerging markets and the risks of investing in these markets are also discussed.

  •    EMERGING MARKETS - CHINA

    Overview

    Once remote from the international community, a series of reforms since the late 1970s has seen China evolve into an economic powerhouse. In 2010, the country surpassed Japan as the world’s second largest economy after the United States. Such has been its phenomenal growth that China is predicted to overtake the US at some point in the 2020s. However, despite the lofty predictions, China faces some significant economic and other challenges.

     

    This course looks in detail at China and its meteoric rise to economic superpower, in addition to some of the challenges the country faces. It also describes the banking and financial sector, which has had to evolve in line with China’s explosive economic growth.
