About the course

On completion of this distance learning course you will have a comprehensive understanding of the increasingly complex discipline of market risk. The course is always up to date, covering internal risk standards, evolving market conditions and new regulatory requirements – including topics like FRTB and IRRBB and other key elements that risk managers need to get up to speed on very quickly.

The biggest challenges are those which increase the likelihood of systemic risk as unorthodox monetary policies proliferate, the changing micro-structure of markets with HFT platforms which can heighten market liquidity risk and the consequential lack of a proper assessment of diversification with a bank’s trading book or investment portfolio. Issues which are all addressed in this ground breaking course.

Over the 14 weeks, this online course distils 25+ years of hands on experience from Clive Corcoran our industry expert in risk. He brings each module to life with practical case studies, video content and quizzes as you progress towards a Postgraduate Certificate in market risk.
