Facilitator Comment | Martin Davies
Perhaps you are a relationship or an account manager who needs to understand the commercial dynamics your clients face. May be you face market uncertainty yourself and would like to know how to measure, transfer and hedge this risk in an effective way.
Speculating on Uncertainty
You may have excess (surplus) cash in treasury, perhaps you wish to exploit market opportunities or build a long term investment strategy. This masterclass deeply explores these aspects of the tradable end of the markets from the simple to the sophisticated and information is demonstrated using real life case studies that are easy to follow.
Supporting those that do
May be you are an auditor or risk manager working with people that take or trade risk and you need to know why they do what they do, what they are actually doing and how they are doing it.
This is not just a workshop on trading but balances out trading practices with risk and performance measurement. It also includes up to date information on new regulations.
