Ethical decision-making in financial markets

The global focus on ethics, culture and conduct in financial markets is placing increasing pressure on the industry to self-regulate the behaviour of both organisations and individuals. ASIC has made it clear that relying on legal compliance is no longer enough to meet regulatory expectations.

Utilising examples and case studies based on current financial markets, this course provides practical training in making ethical decisions and, critically, in voicing and acting on personal and organisational values. You will learn how to make ethical decisions utilising codes of conduct and the easy-to-use Lapochka ethical decision-making tool and practical approaches to speaking and acting on ethical decisions. Designed specifically for financial markets, the course draws on ethical theory and applies it to real-world financial markets situations.
