The course outlines the most important areas of Corporate and Investment Banking from an economic and financial point of view, that is, it describes the main capital and debt financing tools which aim to fulfil the companys’ needs, both in terms of management and finance requirements. Some samples follow: venture capital, private equity, IPO – listing – quotation and placement on capital markets, structured finance and restructuring process (i.e. M&A, LBO, turnaround). In a nutshell, the course:

2) analizes the corporate annual report (i.e. profit and loss, balance sheets and cash flow) from a financial and index point of view, in order to get the main indicators of the company health and richness (or illness and weakness)
3) deals with the extraordinary financial transactions, which can take place along with the typical recurring activity of the commercial banking sector.
4) Finally, the course hints some problems coming from the relations between financial intermediaries and non financial industrial companies, which can cause potential failures and defaults.
