In our experience, many of those working in the financial markets are ill-at-ease with the mathematics underlying the products they are handling, and unsure how to apply even basic concepts like discounting, compounding, and present-value methods. Even if people are working with these products regularly, they may be uncomfortable about the way in which prices are derived, how sensitive these prices are to market forces, and how they should properly deal with variations to standard products.
After attending this first-class seminar, delegates will have mastered the concepts, theory, and practices of bond mathematics, be confident in pricing and valuing a diverse range of fixed income and related financial products, and understand exactly what makes these products tick.
