Fixed Income Attribution The small class size and interactivity of the course was great and allowed me to learn all that I needed to from the course. Rupesh Tailor as a tutor was fantastic. He had an extensive knowledge in the subject matter and was eager to share that knowledge. Jon Gordon, Senior Performance Analyst The xVA Challenge: Counterparty Risk, Collateral, Funding, Capital, Initial Margin and Central Clearing London Financial Studies' XVA Challenge is ideal for anyone that requires knowledge on CVA, FVA and KVA and gives more insight into central clearing and initial margin. It was an overall pleasant learning experience. Annemarie Jansen van Vuuren, IT Quantitative Business Analyst The xVA Challenge: Counterparty Risk, Collateral, Funding, Capital, Initial Margin and Central Clearing The level of the subject matter covered in this course far exceeded my expectations.
