A 2-day training course looking into fixed income instruments and non-option interest rate derivatives products.  Participants will gain a practical understanding of how interest rate and cross currency swaps are used, priced and traded, and be made aware of current trends. A focus of this course will be the link between interest rate derivatives and the fixed income markets.

Risk management methodologies for interest rate derivatives products used by investment banks will also be explored.  Discussions will be had as to how the classical approach to pricing has been challenged during and following the crisis. The new approach adopted by banks and clearing houses will be covered. The programme will remain practical and will present best market practices.

Credit derivatives are increasingly used to manage, take and trade credit risk.  Specifically, credit default swaps (CDS) will be examined, and links will be made between the value of a CDS contract and the price of credit risk in the bond (underlying) markets.

Who should attend

  • All those newly involved in fixed income, DCM and interest rates derivatives sales & trading
  • All those with Middle/Back office, Compliance and Risk Management functions related to fixed income and interest rate derivatives
