This workshop is a 2.5 hour ‘short course in operations’ that focuses on the evolution of share and derivative trades from order placement through to execution to settlement (and later exercise/expiry where relevant) and reporting requirements.
The workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the market and operational process and is an excellent foundation for retail desk assistants. It would suit as a refresher for experienced staff as well as those staff in auxiliary and rotating roles: legal, IT, HR and other supporting roles associated with stockbroking.
The workshop is based on face-to-face learning and includes a mix of presentation and case-studies.
The workshop covers the operations process. Attendees will walk away with a solid understanding of the following:
- The process of share and derivative trades from order placement through to execution to settlement
- Short ASTC rules: sponsorship/HINs deceased estates
- Selling and Prime Stockbroking

- Reporting requirements
Participants will also learn about who regulates the industry and what they do, and the obligations of Licence holders. Market manipulation and other prohibited conduct, as well as insider trading will also be discussed.
