About the course

Exposure to changes in interest rate, currency, equity and commodity markets is a fact of life but effectively measuring and managing those risks can mean the difference between profitability and loss. Selecting the product and risk hedging strategy that makes sense for a particular company and situation requires care and a solid understanding of the financial instrument tools and applications available in the market.

Expert-facilitated program is uniquely designed to help treasury professionals build competency-based skills for identifying, measuring and managing financial risk exposure.

The format combines presentations, case studies and application-focused checklists to cover risk analysis from assessment to evaluation, and will bridge the gap between theories and practice with:

  • an initial overview of fundamental concepts and tools used to manage exposure to changes in interest rate, currency, equity and commodity markets
  • discussions on ways to measure the risk-return tradeoff of popular financial instruments and related applications with respect to economic, operational and structural attributes
  • a focus on practical implementation issues such as data selection, valuation and hedge effectiveness testing

  • identify effective financial instruments used for managing risk from interest rate, currency, equity and commodity changes
