A comprehensive e-learning product covering Monte Carlo Simulation

This course covers techniques for measuring credit risk for derivative products and techniques for the mitigation of pre-settlement/settlement risks such as netting, margin and collateral requirements.

Theme of the course:

Mechanics and techniques for the assessment, quantification and management of the credit risk for exchange-traded and over-the-counter derivatives

Course Overview:

Expansion and globalization of financial markets, complicated derivative contracts and an array of structured products are giving rise to counterparty credit risk.
This product focuses on the mechanics and techniques of the assessment, quantification and management of the credit risk for various derivative products and includes techniques for the mitigation of pre-settlement and settlement risk such as netting and margin and collateral requirements. We also look at the Monte Carlo simulation methods for projecting worst-case exposure at the portfolio level.

After completing this course you will be able to:

- Quantify credit risk in derivative products
- Apply various techniques to mitigate credit risk
- Calculate credit exposure using Monte Carlo simulation
- Assimilate lessons from financial disasters (Barings Fall, Metallgesellschaft)
