Analyzing the Economics of Financial Market Infrastructures
Year: 3. To provide students with a thorough understanding of the functioning of financial markets. The module is intended for motivated students who are interested in developing an analytical understanding of financial economics. It will cover crucial topics such as the role of markets and institutions as providers of liquidity, the reasons for price volatility in financial markets, financial fragility, different types of market microstructure and informational efficiency of financial markets.
After completing the course, students should be able to understand deeply the process of price formation in different markets, trading activity, volatility of asset prices, problems of asymmetric information in markets, and their implications on booms and crises. ECON : Microeconomics or equivalent must have been taken previously. Students should also possess a working knowledge of calculus and probability. Students should be familiar with standard concepts of microeconomics and be fluent in optimisation under constraint. A basic understanding of probability theory is also useful.
Students have great advantage if they are familiar with expected utility. The discount factor, Generalised Methods of Moments and state-space language are considered in the context of the beta, mean-variance, and regression language common in empirical work and earlier theory.
The module concludes by looking at the new research area of behavioural finance.
