Explore the financial products on offer in the UK and how they’re regulated
The financial crisis of the late 2000s transformed the UK financial services industry. This online course takes stock and examines the industry today.
You will review the history of the industry leading up to the financial crisis; examine its institutions and the issues they now grapple with; walk down the financial supermarket aisles and see what’s changing with the products on offer; and find out how the industry is now regulated and protects consumers.
The Open University’s Centre for the Public Understanding of Finance created this course, with the generous support of True Potential LLP.
This course is intended for those with an interest in the financial services industry. The course does not require any previous experience of this subject, but prior study of Managing My Money may be an advantage.
