Course Description:
Increase your financial literacy by exploring in this class the historical evolution of personal wealth management. Since London houses the UK’s central bank, the nation’s premier stock exchange, money markets, derivative exchanges, financial regulators and all the major types of financial institutions, there’s no better place than London for a student to learn about the financial industry that serves the nation and the individual. Visits to various financial institutions such as HSBC international banking corporation, the Bank of England, the London Money Market Association, the Insurance Institute of London (Lloyd’s), and the London Business School will facilitate students’ understanding of how the US and UK personal wealth management systems align and differ.

Prerequisites:
None

Physical Activity Requirements:
On average: 3 to 5 miles of walking. Wear real shoes - the city streets of London are rugged in and of themselves; flip-flops thin sandals or ballet flatsare not allowed on field trip events. We will spend time out in the weather not just in moving from venue to venue. Some of our activities take place outside and in whatever weather is happening that day. July in London is often sunny and even hot but youll still need to bring an umbrella with you.
