Dark Pools, Equity Markets Introduction & Issuing


This e-training programme comprises 3 topics/tutorials. Answer all quiz questions at the end of each tutorial in order to complete the training.

A) Equity Markets – An Introduction
(Estimated Completion Time: 75 Minutes)

Equity markets have undergone profound changes in recent years. The majority of trading still takes place on stock exchanges, with the bulk of business concentrated in a small number of countries. But there has been consolidation among traditional exchanges, while the market has also seen fragmentation with the emergence of new trading venues. Alongside these developments, equity trading has been completely transformed by high frequency trading firms.

This tutorial describes these structural changes in addition to providing an overview of some basic equity market concepts, such as the different types of equity security and fundamental stock valuation metrics.

B) Equity Markets – Issuing
(Estimated Completion Time: 75 Minutes)

The term “IPO” has been a buzzword for many years now, but is just one of a number of potential sources of funds available to companies. This tutorial describes the equity issuance (primary) market in its different forms. This incorporates the public sale of existing private shareholdings, private transfers between investors, and the creation of new equity. The tutorial covers highly visible initial offerings (IPOs and privatizations), private transactions, and various forms of subsequent issuance such as rights offerings.

C) Dark Pools
(Estimated Completion Time: 50 Minutes)

Global equity market structure has undergone profound changes in recent years. The explosive development and continued maturation of the dark pool model are key factors in this. Equity trading is increasingly shifting from traditional securities exchanges to so-called dark trading venues. This tutorial describes dark trading in detail, including its attraction to investors and traders. It also differentiates between the different types of dark pool operating in the market, as well looking at some of the challenges facing the business model, not least the increased regulatory scrutiny.
