Overview

Derivatives markets have witnessed significant change in the years following the financial crisis, not only in how they are regulated, but in the market structure for the trading and clearing of derivative instruments, and in how they are priced.


This programme will provide delegates with a detailed understanding of how these changes have impacted the derivatives landscape, and will be of particular interest to those in client-facing positions and those who are operating in back and middle office functions, who require a comprehensive overview of the changes and how they affect operations.

 
This course will cover:

  • Introduction to derivatives instruments and markets
  • Pricing and valuation of interest rate and currency swaps
  • Derivatives applications:  the uses and benefits
  • Non-linear derivatives

Course Training Method
The programme will use traditional and well-tried techniques, lectures, worked examples and many realistic case studies showing in detail how the products are used and why. The course has been designed to show the products in a highly practical way, without over-complication, with clear illustrations of each so that participants may readily understand them and the role the bank plays. 

Who should attend

  • Hedgers
  • Derivatives sales and trading personnel
  • Risk control, risk management and audit personnel
  • Corporate account officers
  • Asset managers
  • Corporate treasury
