|This course teaches the fundamental analytical processes behind interest rate risk management derivatives products. It covers the credit risk inherent in these products as well as the benefits to the bank and customer from the use of derivative products.
Participants learn the basics of interest rate and foreign currency risk from the view of a bank relationship manager, rather than a derivatives specialist. The course is not designed as a substitute for the expertise of the bank’s strategic partners in the derivatives arena, but rather enhances the participant’s ability to converse with these internal professionals and with bank clients and prospects.
After completing this training, participants should be able to:
- Describe key features of common interest rate risk and foreign currency risk products
- Determine appropriate products given various client needs
- Compare and contrast risks and benefits associated with the products
