The course focuses on the business of structured finance from the financial intermediaries’ standpoint.
The course pays constant attention to the pratical aspects of each structured finance transaction. The repeated use of case studies and of a business game allows students to link the theoretical background to real-life situations. For each transaction, the issues discussed are: 1. definition of the transaction; 2. deal structuring; 3. the trend of demand at both international and domestic level; 4. the situation of the offer (internationally and at the domestic level).
