Derivatives use has grown tremendously over the last 10 years. Whether it’s the Investment Manager using them to manage portfolio risk, reduce dealing costs or enhance returns; the Corporate Treasurer using currency derivatives to manage transaction risk; or the Prop Trader using them to provide leverage and low-cost exposure, it’s impossible to avoid these powerful financial instruments.
However, derivatives can increase the volatility of our financial markets, which is why those who trade with them need to have an in-depth appreciation of not only the way they work, but how their risks can be successfully measured, monitored and counterbalanced.
Capital City Training Ltd boasts a team of experienced financial professionals who provide comprehensive training on all aspects of derivatives and their application risk management, from Derivative 101s through to the use of structured derivative products and option trading strategies in all asset classes. Our training courses cover many important topics and have been developed to frame derivatives in terms of a business’ valuations, operations and accounting practices.
Our derivatives programmes also provide practical applications and modelling examples where required to illustrate how these contracts can be used in real-life circumstances.
