Course description

Corporate Actions - Introduction

The management of Corporate Actions is a key operational function and many staff joining Corporate Actions departments have little understanding of the activities of their new department. This course begins with an understanding of what corporate actions are and why they happen and takes attendees through the main types, in a logical way, explaining industry jargon along the way. No prior knowledge of the City or financial markets is assumed.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course will be of benefit to those who are new, recent or potential recruits to Corporate Actions departments. It may also be helpful to Front Office staff who need a greater understanding of Corporate Actions or those in IT roles looking to gain further understanding of the businesses they support. If you wish to gain a good understanding of a range of corporate actions, the processes, the jargon and an understanding of the potential risks and costs to the business of making errors when managing corporate action events, then this one-day course is for you.
