Press Release   •   Sep 06, 2010 10:33 BST

LFS have delivered in-house programs to major investment banks in the USA for the past 10 years and are now extending their much-respected open courses to the American market.  The expansion comes through a host of programs scheduled to run this fall (2010) in Lower Manhattan.

LFS (London Financial Studies) is an expert teaching resource specializing in capital markets.  The company offers continuing professional education that melds theoretical understanding with practical experience.

LFS’s unique approach was born from work at London Business School that formed “The Financial Markets Seminar Programme”. Over the past 13 years LFS has delivered tailored programs to major institutions globally.  Locations include the USA, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Latin America.

Open courses have been offered in London since 2000.  Capital markets topics include: Credit, Fixed Income, FX, Equity, Commodities and Inflation.  Emphasis is on the latest techniques for risk management, pricing, hedging and arbitrage, both at a strategic and operational level.

Director David Cox notes the acceleration in the pace of market change and the need for continuous learning:  “Global finance is evolving faster than ever which means that our curriculum has to be updated constantly to keep up with the complex nature of today's markets. We are very strict in our selection of teachers to ensure that we attract and retain prominent practitioners and academics with a clear and thorough grasp of their subjects and wide practical experience.”
