The Corporate Finance course is derived from the following three courses: Financial Markets, Financial Economics, and Financial Accounting. BTG Corporate Finance is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 but we are able in certain circumstances to offer a limited range of investment services to clients because we are members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
Corporate Finance includes but is not limited to the study of a firm’s interactions with its stakeholders in general and capital markets in particular, the design of its internal organization structure, its compensation and incentive mechanisms, corporate governance, the management of capital and its internal allocation rules.
By the end of the module you should have no difficulty with financial jargon and you will be more than able to hold your own in the world of finance. In part, they attribute this to the greater complexity of finance jobs, and to the greater skills they required during this period. Accordingly, students wishing to register for Corporate Finance should have a thorough understanding of the main theories and concepts taught in the above three modules. The investment-banking component of corporate finance placement has historically been around 15% of our hiring.
Working closely with the Business Reorganization and Financial Restructuring Practice, the Corporate Finance Group directs our clients through the intricate courtroom proceedings involving First Day orders, cash collateral orders, creditor committee meetings and adversarial proceedings, as well as the documentary labyrinth necessary to structure a secure, successful DIP financing.
The course then proceeds identifying the driving forces behind capital structure decisions and choices over debt and equity finance. An honours degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent overseas qualification in business, accounting, maths, physics, engineering, computing, economics or a minor in finance.
