Valuation Adjustments: The XVA Challenge In the xVA Challenge training, I could strongly feel that the tutor is rich in experience, and catching up with the edge of the development in the field of counterparty risk. He shared his experience and current trend analysis in the industry, so we were actually taught by many cases, which helped us to understand the adjustment process more intuitively. Xianze Hong , - FX Options and Risk Management The course leader Zareer is an excellent teacher with great knowledge of the topics covered in this course. Markus Jonsson, FX Trader FX Options and Risk Management FX Options and Risk Management Course was structured in a way to build up the knowledge of the matter from easy to difficult topics, allowing students for connecting the dots along the way. The teacher does make every effort to clarify the material. I highly recommend participation through LFS Live. Kamil Woronin, Agile Business Analyst I attended the XVA class and found it extremely valuable. As a quant supporting the front office trading teams, obtaining knowledge on the direction the industry is going in was critical. Pat Philbin, Managing Director Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution The LFS Course on Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution was highly informative with a very good balance of introductory learning as well as technical learning. As an Audit professional, I found the course very useful and would recommend it. Evelyn Hayes, Audit Director Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution Jamie's course on Electronic Trading is worth every penny and will vastly increase your knowledge on algorithmic trading! I would wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone on the buy-side but I think a lot of sell-side functions could also benefit from the course. Anisha Mukundan, Vice President Machine Learning and AI Techniques ML & AI are esoteric topics and this course provides a great orientation for anyone who would like to learn more. Learning and gaining expertise takes time and this course will get you started on the right track. Gunveer Singh, Financial Officer Bilateral Margining and Central Clearing Very interesting course. Tutor really knows what he is talking about. Very useful course material. Indra De Munck, Middle Office Valuation Adjustments: The XVA Challenge Great training by great, very knowledgeable trainer!

Fausto Molinari, Risk Specialist Valuation Adjustments: The XVA Challenge Very interesting and in-depth course on several relevant aspects of xVA Marnix van Nierop, Senior Associate Valuation Adjustments: The XVA Challenge The xVA challenge training held by Mr Jon Gregory [teacher] can be considered a mandatory step in the skill development of whoever wants to really understand derivatives management.

The materials are world class and the delivery and interaction bring it to a new level. It exceeded all of my expectations. Matthew Porio, Managing Partner Interest Rate Modelling Fantastic course.
