Global Financial markets (GFM) provide a link between borrowers and lenders across national boundaries. While performing their function, GFMs may introduce severe volatility and instability in the real economic activity affecting national income, output and employment. These instabilities lead to financial crises and recession. International capital mobility and free trade link the financial markets globally, causing volatility and instability in one region to be transferred to the rest of the world – this is called contagion. The financial markets arena is a field which is constantly evolving; in which updated and specialized knowledge is essential. Financial companies today seek candidates who not only have excellent knowledge of their field and specialist skills, but who can cope with dynamism and lead the company successfully through changes. The innovations in the financial markets, as well as the globalization process and technological changes require highly trained professionals, able to face the challenges in the financial areas of corporate business. They seek individuals who can represent the company in a positive light when dealing with clients and transmitting in them, confidence of the company’s ability to manage the funds.
