Global Market Conduct

Course Outline

Learners are taken on a virtual round-the-world trip and on their travels encounter a series of market conduct scenarios. These scenarios cover a range of information and market manipulation problems.


The course begins with a summary of prohibited behaviours and practices. This summary is high level and contains information that might be found in a firm's market abuse policy. Detailed reference to the laws and regulations of a particular jurisdiction are avoided.

The Journey

The heart of the course is a series of case studies that show the practical application of these prohibitions. The cases cover sales, trading, research and private side activity.

The case studies include a range of cities including London, New York, Mumbai, Dubai, Tokyo and Singapore.

Course Test

Each case study comes with a series of questions. An end of course multiple choice test can be added on request.
