Since the collapse of the financial markets in 2008, banking and the markets has been in the news a lot. Without wanting to come across as patronising, it’s an incredibly complex industry and in short, a lot of people don’t understand it. Hell, I’ve worked in the financial industry since 2000 and I don’t understand a lot of it.

So I wrote a series of beginner’s guides for Londonist which aimed to give some basic knowledge and explanation around different market areas, especially the kind of things that come up in the news.

Here they are:

London Financial Institutions: A Beginner’s Guide

The Beginner’s Guide To Financial Markets: Foreign Exchange

The Beginner’s Guide to Financial Markets: Equities

The Beginner’s Guide To Financial Markets: Commodities

The Beginner’s Guide To Financial Markets: Derivatives

The Beginner’s Guide to Financial Markets: Bonds
