Learning outcomes

The course is divided in two parts concerning the Stock Exchanges and the financial Conglomerates. The first part intends to analyse the economics of a Stock Exchange in order to understand the characteristics of this business. In particular the course focuses on the value chain of a Stock Exchange analysing the listing, the trading and the post-trading. Particular emphasis is devoted to the comparison among the European Stock Exchanges in order to identify their successful strategic choices.
On the other hand, the second part focuses on the process of merger and acquisition between bank and insurance intermediaries in order to examine the evolution of financial Conglomerates and their characteristics.
