The xVA Challenge: Counterparty Credit Risk, Collateral, Funding and Capital Before attending this course I have already benefited a lot from reading Dr Gregory's book. During the course, Dr Gregory gave detailed elaboration on all the concepts, which greatly strengthened my understanding. This is the best course I have attended during the recent 10 years. Chen Dihua, Executive Director Interest Rate Derivatives 1: Hedging and Managing Risk I loved the practicality of the course. Rebecca Matlala, FX Sales Applied Machine Learning and AI in Finance This is a great course! In three days I learned the most important parts of machine learning and AI. It will greatly help me to do my job better. C Hou, Quantative RIsk Analyst FX Exotic Options It has been a pleasure to attend the course on FX Exotic Option held by Prof Wystup. He gave us a very well described picture of today's FX industry. During the course, he shared his ideas with great enthusiasm and clarity, giving us many examples to work on. One of the best teachers I met in my experience. LFS did a great job organizing this course. Dario Alitab, Quantitative Analyst Maths Refresher for Finance The course brings you back to the basics of mathematics, to those theories and equations that are really important in the financial world. As a researcher exactly what I needed to start with new research ideas. Vivien Csapi Kleschne, Assistant Professor Strategic Asset-Liability Management for Financial Institutions The course was very helpful in understanding the principles of ALM and the new chalanges arising from regulatory reguirements. Peter Poledna, Portfolio Manager Strategic Asset-Liability Management for Financial Institutions Thank you very much - lots of interesting topics touched which I hope I will be able to exploit in my daily activity. Gianluca Conzon, Unknown Implementing a Robust ICAAP Framework Valuable course, as an internal auditor expected to form an opinion about the effectiveness of the ICAAP framework. The tutor helped me to understand how other banks translate the (principle based) guidelines to a robust ICAAP framework by sharing his own view and best practices in the sector. Lucas van der Steen, Senior internal audit specialist Fixed Income Attribution One of the best and most useful training I've had. Helene Incarnato, Senior manager Fixed Income Attribution Deep and comprehensive material used for the course which can fit to practice in the real world. Abdul Fattah Rinol Azhar, Associate Volatility: Trading and Managing Risk The course was beyond the needs of and my objectives given my current role in wealth management. […] What I found most exceptional about Simon (teacher) was his ability to present the material in a way that enabled both a basic understanding of the material for novice modellers like myself as well as provide a mathematical foundation and validation for those in the class with advanced degrees in math-based studies. […] Allen Pierce, First Vice President - Wealth Management Volatility: Trading and Managing Risk Dr. Simon Acomb's delivery was a rigorous but very insightful practical training tailored for Quants on volatility modelling. It emphasizes the features of each model as well as their limitations in practice. Rolando D. Navarro Jr., Senior Quantitative Analyst Interest Rate Modelling in the Multi-curve Framework: Collateral and Regulatory Requirements Very practical and impressive. Cho Jui Wu, Quantitative research Applied Machine Learning and AI in Finance Excellent introduction to machine learning and AI, as well as Python. I learnt more than I ever thought would be possible in three days! Antti Manninen, Senior Analyst Applied Machine Learning and AI in Finance Very powerful course, will keep you up-to-date with Applied Machine Learning & AI techniques.
