Australia’s financial markets are among the most sophisticated and well regulated markets in the world. Central to the operation of efficient markets is the role of stockbrokers.
The Business of Stockbroking in Australia provides an overview of Australia’s financial markets and the critical role that stockbrokers play in both retail and institutional markets. A short history of broking in Australia sets the scene for explanation of the current market structure, operations and regulation.
A high-level view of broking operations including order taking, transaction and settlement will provide insight into the different systems involved and allow for a discussion of the different business models in broking today.
The workshop is based on face-to-face learning and involves a mix of presentation, case studies and scenario-based discussion.
Attendees will expect to walk away with a solid understanding of the following:
- Operation of Financial Markets
- Financial Products
- Broking Operations
- ‘Acronym Alert’ – explanation of common acronyms and jargon
