Participants will gain an overview of the capital and treasury markets globally and within the City of London especially.
They will also obtain an understanding of the market players and their imperatives, a familiarity with the major product types and their uses and a level of comfort with financial terminology and jargon.
The seminar will also cover credit derivatives in a reasonable degree of depth, and participants will gain an appreciation of the risks transferred by these products (and the residual risks that are not).
In addition, delegates will appreciate the uses of credit derivatives for corporate financing structures and the circumstances in which they might be utilised for hedging risk, both from a client standpoint and from that of the corporate banker.
From the risk management area they will also become comfortable with the need for, and the techniques of, risk identification and quantification, including understanding. the various roles of management, front office, middle office & support within an organisation’s treasury.
They should also be conversant with the concepts of control that are used to contain treasury risk within the parameters defined by the organisation.
