Accounting for Derivatives in Practice under IFRS9 An excellent course for anybody involved in accounting for hedging under IFRS9. I am a fan of Juan Ramirez and have used his books for years so to have him present the course was fantastic. Jeff Harris, Treasury Controller The xVA Challenge: Counterparty Risk, Collateral, Funding, Capital, Initial Margin, and Central Clearing The course covers all the most relevant topics and is well designed and comprehensive. Jon is one of the best in the counterparty risk field and is also one of the best teachers I've had. It was hugely helpful for what I do and I enjoyed learning from him! Ang Middleton, Bank Examiner - Risk Specialist Inflation Derivatives and Index-Linked Bonds A really concise course on the inflation linked derivatives market. We covered a lot over a short space of time and it was all supported by interesting practical exercises. Allen Twyning, Head of Debit Origination, Investments Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution Jamie [teacher] was a great presenter with a lot of interesting stories and examples to help explain complex concepts. Joy Tolia, FX Trader Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution Excellent course, engaging and informative Aimee Louzado, Audit DIrector Fundamental Review of the Trading Book The course was well designed and had the right amount of information for a 2 days course. The remote experience [LFS Live] was quite good and I never felt I was missing out by not being in the room. Would definitely be doing this again in the future. Pedro Raquel de Almeida, Executive Director Fixed Income Attribution Very practical course that gives you hands-on experience with regard to Fixed income attribution. Rens Bakker, Investment Manager Fixed Income Attribution The course was very intense, but incredibly helpful in gaining more insight into the characteristics as well as attribution of fixed income securities. Darryl-Craig van Heerden, Performance Analyst Modern Asset Allocation & Portfolio Construction The program is very extensive and insightful. It encompasses not just the theory behind the models/concepts but also how to apply it into the real world/industry. Wilhelmsen G. Palmes, Technical Assistant Modern Asset Allocation & Portfolio Construction The course made me realize the modern techniques in the art and science of investment and risk management. This course is highly recommended for people who would like to boost up their knowledge on the subject matter. Armin Paul D. Allado, Treasury Operations Officer IV Macro Drivers of Asset Performance and Global TAA Strategy I came into the course with several important questions about the macro drivers of asset performance and came away with answers and useful directions for follow-up research. It was a worthwhile two-days of training. Dan Rodriguez, Adjunct Faculty Modern Asset Allocation & Portfolio Construction Great course that gives a good overview of current applicable research in the modern asset allocation field Fred Schulte Fischedick, Financial Risk Advisor Macro Drivers of Asset Performance and Global TAA Strategy This course helped connecting a lot of dots in my head.
