Please join our accomplished speaking faculty to work from the ground up, building solid foundational knowledge with key discussions including:
An introduction to the basic instruments of credit derivatives:
credit default swaps
loan cds
credit linked notes
total return swaps
An examination of the hottest segment of the market: CDS of ABS
Managing risk exposure with credit derivatives
Pricing and valuing CDS
How to implement successful trading strategies
Market perspective from Brian Peters of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York
And more!
