In Prof Christidis’s Banking and Financial Services module, she examines the process of financial intermediation and financial services through which intermediation takes place. Theoretical and applied concepts are used to provide an understanding of the functioning of banks and financial services, and of their size and economic significance. Students will be exposed to real-world issues, including up-to-date financial news in leading financial publications and will critically appraise bank-based financial crises. Students will be able to integrate ethical investing and responsible finance in their decision-making. They will also be prepared to make informed future career choices, based on the knowledge they acquire of the finance and investment industry.
