This course of two modules will be of benefit to those who wish to develop a basic understanding of fixed income securities, equtiy instruments and derivatives and the markets in which they operate.

Objective of the program:

The first day gives an overwiew on how the value of a particular asset can be determined. In investment management, the most important decision made is the allocation of funds among asset classes. The two major asset classes are equities and fixed income securities. Our focus is on the underlying priciples of valuation of equities and fixed income securities after looking at the various features of those financial instruments. It is also explained how those features affect the risks associated with investing in them thus giving a synopsis of the risk-return relationship as well as return concepts.

To many within the financial services industry derivatives are thought of as very complicated. The second day of this course demystifies the terminology and ensures a full understanding of the concepts behind derivatives. It also fosters an understanding of the instruments used and the potential risks involved.

Theoretical explanations are underpinned by numerous practical examples in order to enhance understanding and practicability of the material.
