History

In the past decade London Financial Studies has become widely acclaimed as one of the best teaching resources for capital markets practitioners. Over that time we have delivered a diverse range of programmes to individuals, major financial institutions and government bodies worldwide.The London Financial Studies ethos of combining excellent and effective teaching grounded in sound theory as well as relevant and practical real-world experience is a direct result of the experience of the founder, David Cox.During his career in banking, he became aware of the acute need for high quality teaching relating to capital markets. After leaving the City he joined the London Business School and set out to develop techniques and materials to meet this need. The result was a series of short courses for practitioners: The Financial Markets Seminar Programme. London Financial Studies has refined the approach and uses the same methodology throughout its programme.
