Looking to broaden your understanding of financial risk and the tools needed to mitigate that risk? Are you interested in subjects such as equity and fixed income investments?

London School of Business and Finance’s experienced tutors will provide you with the competencies required in the application of fundamental securities valuation models, as well explaining both the benefits and potential shortcomings of these models. You will gain the skills-sets needed to value derivatives and alternative investments such as forwards, futures, swaps, commodities, and metals, oil, and gas. This will enable you to develop effective risk-avoidance strategies in order to enhance both the value and security of your organisation.

This is the ideal programme for professionals wishing to specialise in investment banking and securities, or for those who have a keen interest in the derivatives and alternative markets from the standpoint of financial risk management.
