Authors: John Fadden, Peter Watterston

Published: December 2018 | ISBN: 9781860727351


The complete study guide for the Investment modules of ICSA’s Level 4 International Finance and Administration qualifications. This guide provides an overview of savings and investment products, the conditions required for a perfect market and discusses a range of bonds and collective investments. It also covers the role, operation and regulation of stock markets and trading platforms and explores aspects of derivatives, money markets and foreign exchange.

To help students apply principles and theory to real-life business situations, this text contains:

  • Case law and case examples
  • ‘Test yourself’ questions with full, worked answers
  • Worked examples and ‘stop and think’ scenarios

Designed as an introductory programme for those who work, or want to work, in international finance, ICSA’s IFA qualifications are transferable across jurisdictions. The qualifications are regulator-recognised in Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and the British Virgin Islands.
