Description

The Capital Market*Training places a focus on risk measurement,
reporting and management for derivatives and structured products.
The teams of participants manage flows for the „long“ book consisting of
interest, liquidity and spread risks. Step-by-step, participants will work out
the necessary prerequisites for a proper measurement of risk and returns
within the individual risk categories and thus learn about and train their
application in real-live work situations.
