A Masterclass in Treasury Products and Risk Management

Five intensive days of training.

2 - 6 November 2020

Virtual Classroom

The course covers all the products you need to hedge treasury risks so that you can hedge whichever risks your company faces. You’ll return to work fully conversant with forwards, futures, swaps and options and you’ll know when to use them.

You will:

  • Learn which risk management techniques are giving the best results
  • Be able to identify, measure and manage your firm’s currency and interest rate exposures
  • Learn how to save yourself and your clients money by using cost effective hedging techniques
  • Use your new understanding of the mistakes others have made to avoid making losses
  • Use recent market transactions to learn what happens when treasury risks are managed well and what happens when they aren’t

Over five days, you'll use  simulations, treasury management meetings and discussion sessions to study all aspects of treasury products.

Using case studies based on the risk management practices of major banks and multi-national corporations, you’ll learn how they approach risk management so that you can apply their techniques to your business.
