This guide has been compiled to support students in their course work for Macroeconomics and Global Financial Markets (ECON603)
This course provides students with a foundational study of the economic concepts and theories necessary to understand and analyze the state and outlook of the global economy and their impact on financial markets. The role of monetary policy and exchange rate policy in managing interest rates, inflation and trade competitiveness will be discussed and the linkages to strategies for investment management will be highlighted. The global economy and its financial markets are keenly interconnected: Expectations of growth and policy changes impact financial markets to the same extent that fluctuations in market prices influence growth and policies.
