About This Course
 

Market, credit, liquidity risk and how each is interconnected is the cornerstone of a risk manager's day-to-day job function. We learn the principles and methods from a wide array of resources, which often provides only a conceptual understanding. Knowing when and how to use these principles and methods can take years of on-the-job practice. 

In this course, you’ll participate in hands-on exercises designed to replicate real-life financial risk measurement and mitigation situations. Each exercise is described in detail before you attempt to solve it. Afterwards the instructor walks you through the solution and key takeaways. Join us and experience, first-hand, practical use of market, credit, liquidity, and interconnected risk measurement and mitigation methods and the decisions necessary to complete these financial risk management functions.

Requisite

  • Microsoft Word and Excel 

Learning Objectives

  • Deepen understanding of financial risk measurement and mitigation methods
  • Practice the application of well-established financial risk management concepts and terminology

How It Works

There are four courses in this series. Each course contains exercises that provide practical application of the topic. Each Tuesday one of the four courses is launched and you can work through the video lectures and exercises at your own pace. Each lesson contains either an overview of the topic and an explanation of the exercise or the solution to the exercise. The instructor, Steve Lindo, will be monitoring the course and is available for Q&A via our online learning platform through September 14, 2020.
