Interest Rate Derivatives 2: Structured Products

A comprehensive and practical workshop on pricing, using and managing structured interest rate derivatives.

What used to be called exotic interest rate derivatives are now commonplace and an essential part of the financial marketplace either as legacy transactions or embedded in new structures.

This intensive programme is for anyone who wishes to be able to use, price, manage, market or evaluate standard second generation interest rate derivatives such as Constant Maturity Swaps, Range Accruals and Quantos. Groups are kept small and more than half of the course is devoted to practical workshops. The exercise answers include fully worked scenario spreadsheets containing relevant Excel functions and macros for participants to take away.
