School of Treasury Products and Risk Management
REASONS WHY THIS EXCITING COURSE WILL MAKE A PROFOUND DIFFERENCE TO YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS:
REAL-LIFE PRACTICAL EXAMPLES
The course includes a large array of treasury management exercises and case studies based on well-known multinationals in five sectors: technology; pulp and paper; airlines, consumer goods and finance. Participants will therefore learn the dynamic practice of treasury management as well as the generally held ideas and beliefs which support this practice.
COMMUNICATE WITH CONFIDENCE
This course aims to augment your ability to discuss treasury risks with clients, customers, prospects and your colleagues within your division of your firm. It reflects the need for bankers to develop a detailed knowledge of customers and the sector in which they operate and for corporate and other institutional hedgers to understand bankers and the hedging solutions they offer. The course encourages a dialogue among the participants, as well as with the trainer, which allows bankers and their customers to explore the customers’ needs, before determining how best to cover these needs and the role which banks might play in this.
HANDS-ON HEDGING & TRADING SIMULATIONS
The course contains four hedging sessions, which are designed to help participants understand the practical dynamics of hedging by involving them in a trading/hedging environment. The first day’s session is designed to be as simple as possible (the oil market), but each day the complexity increases so that by the end of the course the participants will have a good grasp of how to hedge, not only in the spot markets, but also in more elaborate and complex situations involving futures and swaps.
TREASURY MANAGEMENT MEETINGS
There will also be four treasury management meetings where the participants will look at the policies, procedures and exposures of wellknown companies. This will broaden participants’ understanding of the practical application of the mechanics of treasury management, as well as learning about the relationship between corporations and their bankers.
RETURN TO WORK WITH A DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
Participants who enrol on this programme, will have the opportunity to practice treasury management during each of the five days of the course. When they leave they will have a short, medium and long-term plan for developing their treasury management expertise in their own firms.
