This two-day course covers the management of credit risk in fixed-income portfolios.

Course Agenda

    This course takes participants through the analysis of risk on a stand-alone and portfolio basis. Emphasis is placed on the identification and calculation of standard risk inputs and the application of these metrics in a Value-at-Risk (VaR) style model. The program also deals with the management of counterparty credit risk that is created by any hedging products present in fixed-income (FI) portfolios. The course ends with a discussion around the management of portfolio risks using derivatives.

  • Understand the analysis of stand-alone credit risk, using standard credit metrics and a VaR framework.
