A Masterclass in Derivatives

Five days of intensive training

16 - 20 November 2020

Central London

Expert TS Ho will teach you that the key to understanding derivatives is that all products, no matter how complex, are portfolios of just two fundamental building blocks: a swap (forward) and an option. You’ll study the principles, methods and mathematical tools for understanding the analytics of derivatives structuring, plus the use, valuation and risk management. You’ll discuss the economic intuition behind each important aspect of derivatives, in order to show how they can be understood in a more sophisticated way. The concepts and mathematics are illustrated by detailed examples from the market place and you’ll participate in extensive modelling and computations using Excel spreadsheets.
