Optimal MRM’s e-Learning program bridges the gap between theoretical risk knowledge and application, by providing a practical understanding of market risk, traded credit risk, liquidity risk, and capital management to functional and executive teams in risk management, finance, audit, and front-office, in financial organizations.
The risk measurement and management concepts and techniques presented in this program can be adapted in a traded or non-traded setting, on an accrual-accounting or fair value-accounting basis. The program provides general market risk measurement and management knowledge that can be applied in banks, insurance companies, pension funds, asset management firms, and related organizations such as financial regulatory bodies and accounting firms.
The modular structure of the program allows individuals and organizations to tailor risk learning, to suit their requirements. Although many sections of this program are technical in nature, the program is suitable for quantitative and general practitioners. Basic proficiency in math and Excel is sufficient to gain an understanding of the concepts presented.
The program combines rudimentary risk measurement techniques in building a path towards a portfolio view of risk and optimization. Where appropriate, an Excel spreadsheet is provided as part of the downloadable package, to enable subscribers to practice risk measurement and follow along the Excel part of the presentation video.
Attendance in Optimal MRM’s e-Learning modules is eligible for continuing education credits by CFA Institute.
