Financial markets and services comprise all the functions in a financial market such as broking, share transfer, portfolio management, dematerialisation of shares and more. The industry requires skills related to all products, services, legalities and the various aspects of relevant jobs. According to a report by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), the BFSI (banking, financial services and insurance) sector currently contributes more than 6 percent towards India's GDP. The report further states that the projected human resource requirement between 2008 and 2022 is estimated to reach over 4.2 million.
Financial Markets and Services is a course that prepares students for entry-level jobs in the financial services industry. It helps them understand the various financial products and services offered and the markets in which they operate along with the legal requirements. The BFSI sector offers opportunities to become intermediaries such as brokers, depository participants, investment bankers and others.
The hands-on experience would be delivered through practical projects that are similar to job situations in all products and services, using a simulator of the stock trading platform. NSE SMART, the simulated market trading application reproduces the features of a live equity/derivative/currency derivative market on trading terminals for students to practise and learn trading in securities without financial risk.
The above mentioned hands-on configuration will be leveraged by the students to complete the industry assignment as well as to complete the Part B section of the summative assessment.
