About GBRW Financial Markets Training

GBRW Learning’s Financial Markets training includes 'The Economics of Financial Markets', a three-day primer for junior-level and mid-level professionals in financial institutions, across all functions, who are seeking to develop a deeper understanding of how financial markets operate, and how they fit into the broader economy. Key themes include understanding the economic principles underpinning financial markets, financial calculations, and financial instruments.

An advanced training programme in 'Commodity Derivatives' is aimed at client-facing bankers, support staff, credit analysts and auditors involved with commodity transactions. The course takes participants through the main commodity sectors, and illustrates how price risk arises and can be managed. It promotes a clearer understanding of the opaque world of physical commodities and the constantly evolving commodity derivative markets. The programme is facilitated by Emma Jenkins, a commodity expert with over 20 years’ experience in commodity derivatives and finance, who has run training programmes on the subject around the world.
