Course Description

Banking and financial markets encompass the ‘ecosystem’ that (a) channelizes money from those who have it (i.e. savers/investors) to those who need it (i.e. borrowers) and (b) facilitates cross-border flow of funds through exchange of currencies. The ecosystem of banks and financial markets (including Central Banks) has deepened in size, sophistication and complexity over the years. However, in recent times they have also been the subject of abuse, failures and economic distress in several countries resulting in a ‘contagion’ that has concurrently affected several countries around the world!

More recently, and perhaps more importantly, thanks to the liberalization of most economies, the world has witnessed an exponential increase in the free flow of capital across countries. Banking institutions and financial markets, being the predominant conduit for such free flow of capital across countries, have therefore become even more "glo...

Banking and financial markets encompass the ‘ecosystem’ that (a) channelizes money from those who have it (i.e. savers/investors) to those who need it (i.e. borrowers) and (b) facilitates cross-border flow of funds through exchange of currencies. The ecosystem of banks and financial markets (including Central Banks) has deepened in size, sophistication and complexity over the years. However, in recent times they have also been the subject of abuse, failures and economic distress in several countries resulting in a ‘contagion’ that has concurrently affected several countries around the world!

More recently, and perhaps more importantly, thanks to the liberalization of most economies, the world has witnessed an exponential increase in the free flow of capital across countries. Banking institutions and financial markets, being the predominant conduit for such free flow of capital across countries, have therefore become even more "globally interconnected." Such a globally interconnected financial system, combined with regulatory systems that are country-specific and hence varying considerably in rigor and implementation, has further compounded the risks and the consequent contagion, as witnessed in the global financial meltdown that was triggered in 2008.

This course on ‘Banking and Financial Markets’ comprises two parts:

In an earlier course, which was introductory in nature, we had looked at the theory and concepts underlying banking and financial markets, the products and instruments offered and the associated market mechanisms.

In this more advance course, we will look at Banking and Financial Markets from a Risk Management Perspective:

  • The embedded risks in any financial system: credit risk, interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk, operational risk, off-balance sheet risk, etc.
  • The contagion effect of these risks, as witnessed in the 2008 global financial meltdown
  • How are these risks identified, measured and managed, using several risk mitigation techniques and sound regulatory oversight.

The course content is really helpful for those who want to upgrade their skills on risk management. I am really happy that without going to IIM-Bangalore also a person can complete his course through this platform. Really amazing and wonderful. I am really thankful to Professor for guiding the working executives like us. It was a pleasant journey with you Sir. Regards Jyotiranjan Nayak

This course was easy to follow and very interesting. It gives practical examples which makes it easy to follow and understand. The spreadsheets are sometimes difficult to see due to the size of the fonts. But by seeing it a few times you can understand what is being calculated. Thank you very much Professor.

Thoroughly enjoyed pursuing this course. Must say Prof. PC Narayan's lectures are highly addictive :-). This particular course is delivered in videos of right length and content which perfectly suits busy professionals and full time students alike. Prompt responses on queries by the course moderator Ms. Divya is commendable. Looking forward for more courses on banking and finance from Prof. Narayan and IIM.

I am happy to complete the course Banking and Financial Markets: Risk Management Perspective recently. I am highly impressed by the course content specifically videos and the course materials course; dealt in a simple and easy understanding by the course team. The entire credit should go to Prof PC Narayan (Course Instructor), Divya Pareek (Course Moderator) and the team members. Prof Narayan has not only made the subject interesting but also brought practical perspectives for the learners. Divya Pareek was prompt in supporting the learners with explanations and clarifications all through the course. According to me the course was carefully planned so that course contents are not lengthy in each stage and transitions are connected. Inclusion of two webinars during the course was an excellent way to clarify doubts and to discuss related aspects of the course. Overall the course learning was interesting and useful.

Dr. Narayan is one of the best professors that I have ever had in any subject. He is extremely well organized and thorough. His explanations are very detailed and explicit. If you focus on his presentation, the excellent graphics, and the integrated content, you will learn the subject in a manner which will give great benefits. You must take your time and again...focus. What I missed is my own fault...again...not focusing enough and not taking the time to fully understand the content. I HIGHLY recommend this course and Dr. Narayan's method of instruction.

The regulatory aspects of Banking and Financial Markets were dealt with very succinctly and so were the aspects of different types of risk.The speed of delivery was easy to follow.We were able to hear every point clearly.Enthusiasm and energy were conveyed.Visual aids have truly enhanced the impact of presentation.We thank Sri PC Narayan and the supporting staff for having conceptualized such a good course.

I was skeptical initially but I am definitely impressed with what I have learnt through this course. I feel Mr. Narayan is very genuine and is willing to teach us the nooks and crannies of Banking. I am glad to be enrolled in this course and I also appreciate how they have extended deadlines to enable us to finish the course feasibly. Thank you very much.
