Introduction to Derivative Valuation

Event : Introduction to Derivative Valuation

Wed, 02/07/2014  
Conducted by : Infoline
Contact : Haydn Gush

This workshop is designed to take delegates who have little or no knowledge of derivative valuation to the point where they have a good grasp of the fundamental drivers and methodologies behind the process, including the basic rational and need for accurate valuations for accounting, risk management and regulatory purposes.

The workshop focuses on the practical aspects of the process and, although it covers numerical examples and the use of models, the agenda is designed to allow the non-mathematician a considerable understanding of the core methodologies.

Delegates attending this course will leave with a good understanding of why and how derivatives are valued and how errors and anomalies in those values may be spotted.
