Welcome

Welcome to the educational page of Academy, the training centre of the London Stock Exchange Group.

There is a growing interest internationally in improving financial capability and an increased recognition of the need for financial education.

On 18 November 2008, the European Parliament commented on personal finance education and issued the session document entitled 'On protecting the consumer: improving consumer education and awareness on credit and finance'.

This first EU Parliament document was a starting point for local European Financial Authorities to develop a range of educational programmes and projects for individuals.

London Stock Exchange Group offers private investors a range of trading products and services; our educational programme aims to provide investors with an understanding of how these products can be used in practice.

Through a monthly programme of educational articles, Academy will provide an overview of how financial markets work, who the main capital markets players are and ultimately how to use this knowledge to improve one’s own personal investment and trading strategy.

Areas that will be explored include the role of a stock exchange within today’s capital markets as well as more in depth studies of technical and fundamental analysis, all aimed at supporting a private investor's trading strategy.


The role of a Stock Exchange

A stock exchange allows companies to raise funds by providing them with access to a pool of private and institutional investors.
