Description

Modern securities markets: myths and realities

Whether investing in a professional capacity, or looking to grow your nest egg, navigating modern securities markets can seem daunting – and no wonder. With a myriad of constantly evolving concepts and processes, and sometimes sensationalist reporting from the media, there are a number of market-related fictions masquerading as fact. At our next Learn@Lunch presentation, we will seek to dispel the myths of modern securities markets with an insightful presentation by finance guru Professor Carole Comerton-Forde.

With a core focus on institutional investment (with retail/individual investment insights peppered in) Professor Comerton-Forde will unpack how markets in both Australia and overseas have evolved over the last decade, and how this has impacted investors. This will include an exploration into the purpose and integrity of the ominously-named ‘dark pools’, the true impact of short selling and high-frequency trading, and how competition from relative newcomer Chi-X has altered the Australian equity market landscape.
