      Summary:

      AMT's two day intensive modeling program teaches participants the steps required to accurately build a three statement forecast model. Including dealing with circularities, building detailed revenue forecasts and cash sweeps & error checking.

      This is accomplished through a series of practice files which have increasing levels of difficulty through the module.

      Common errors are covered from balancing a non-balancing balance sheet to debugging a model that is non-intentionally circular.

      Summary:

      This course concentrates on the features of equity options and hedging strategies that are available to clients. The starting point is the key definitions of options. Following this, participants are encouraged to consider options from the point of view of a deferred decision to invest or a current decision to hedge. Pay-off profiles form a large part of this session, before the key issues of volatility and risk management are addressed.

      This next part of the course starts with examples of common hedging strategies. A lengthy case study then sees participants comparing a number of options strategies to generate a hedge solution for a client. This case study is a very powerful learning opportunity. The participants are working with little tutor input using a spread-sheet which shows them the price, pay-off profile at maturity and risk data for a number of options. During the final part of the course common trading strategies are explored. Participants will consider the strategies used by fund managers in the equity markets to hedge and take risk.

      This course combines theory with the reality of actual financial market transactions. Participants will be provided with Excel models which they will use to create hedging solutions using options.

      Summary:

      During this course participants start by building a bond pricing model in Excel. This exercise brings to life the practicalities of bond cash flows and the issues surrounding day count fractions. Participants then study duration, DV01 and the various bond risk management measures and build these within the pricing model. The course includes market based case studies where the risk management techniques are applied. Participants will consider the strategies used by fund managers in the bond markets to hedge and take risk. For each strategy the focus will be risk profile along with risk metrics which the strategy generates.

      This course is ideal for those looking for a more detailed understanding of bond mathematics, pricing, hedging and risk management.

      Summary:

      Participants take a deep dive into the world of interest rate swaps. The initial focus is on hedging interest rate risk and the mechanics and language of this financial market product. Participants will then study how interest rate swaps are used to manage the income from fixed income portfolios. A case study affords participants with time to reflect on their knowledge in this area; eight clients are considered and individual solutions need to be recommended. Key risk management principles are outlines throughout the session.

      The afternoon session is highly interactive and somewhat technical in nature. Participants will build an interest rate swap pricing model in Excel. Whilst doing this, participants will study the mathematical relationships between par swap rates, discount factors and forward rates. When the model is completed a series of existing and new interest rate swaps will be priced so that the participants can maximize their understanding of the mechanics of this important financial market product.

      Demystify market jargon and discover how and why derivatives are constructed and used. This course introduces participants to the fundamentals of futures, options and swaps. The starting point is the key features of futures; namely pricing and the margin process. Participants will also consider the benefits of futures versus over the counter forwards. The key definitions of options follow and participants are encouraged to consider options from the point of view of a deferred decision to invest. Pay-off profiles form a large part of this session, before the key issues of volatility are addressed. The final part of the course looks at swaps: interest rate, cross currency, equity and credit default. Using these derivatives to create solutions for banking clients is a key emphasis of the course.
