Mastering Swap Markets Training Course


15 - 17 March 2021

Face to Face, Central London, UK

Swaps continue to play a fundamental role in the financial markets. Challenges like alternative reference rates, LIBOR rigging, increased collateral requirements and intense competition for clearing business, have not slowed the inexorable growth of this vital financial tool which enables borrowers, investors and banks to hedge their interest rate, currency, credit, equity, commodity, volatility and inflation exposures.

This course will give you the opportunity to integrate a theoretical knowledge of swaps with practical market applications.  You'll use practical sessions and exercises so that you will be able to apply your new knowledge immediately. These include:

  • Calculating the risks and rewards of the swaps market
  • Applying and using interest rate derivatives effectively
  • Exploring the full range of swap products
  • Learning about the pricing and arbitrage relationships in the swaps market
  • Applying swaps to risk management
