Introduction to Derivatives Training

Duration of training: 2 Days

Training Delivery: Instructor-led

 This program introduces the nuances of a derivative market where investors can buy and sell risks. It is important to understand that superficial applications of mis-understood models, disregarding the limitations or simplifying assumptions or boundry limitations may create the false illusions that risk has been eliminated.

The program is a pragmatic introductory approach to derivatives as a hedging instrument

Programme Objectives

  • To provide an overview of the different types of derivatives: options, forward contract, futures and swaps.
  • Understand the institutional characteristics of the options market including the exchange and OTC market
  • The role of arbitrage in pricing options by applying it to demonstrate the fundamental principles that determine the options price
  • Evaluate the option pricing model: the Binomial & the Black Scholes.

Training Methodology

The training session will be conducted along workshop principles with introductory presentations by the programme leader that is followed by case study analysis and interactive worked examples.

Participants will be actively engaged, individually and as part of a group, in the preparation and presentation of balance sheet, liquidity and the analysis of other financial statements which will be taken from various industrial and service sector organizations.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own cases and problems for discussion within the programme: the programme leader has extensive experience of handling such problems and requests and can usefully blend participants’ requests seamlessly into the programme.
