FX Options and Risk Management

In our globalized world, there are few areas of business left untouched by Foreign Exchange (FX) risk. This programme will lead you steadily from the basics to the state of the art, and give you the confidence to understand, price, risk-manage and apply a wide variety of FX derivatives products.

Delegates will gain a solid understanding of the FX markets and an insight into the products and methods that can be used for managing FX market risk. Examples and case studies are used throughout the course, both to illustrate concepts and to demonstrate the motivation behind the development of financial products.

A substantial part of the programme is devoted to workshop sessions, in which delegates are able to work through practical examples and case studies, helping them to understand and retain the knowledge to be applied back at work.

All delegates receive the latest edition of Dr Zareer Dadachanji's book "FX Barrier Options: A Comprehensive Guide for Industry Quants".
