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.
Each module that a member subscribes to is accessible for 9 months, or a maximum of 9 accesses, as determined by the number of times that the member presses the ‘Launch’ button for the given module.
Each module includes:
A streamed presentation video
A downloadable Excel spreadsheet
A downloadable PDF
The viewing time of the presentation video, for each module, is between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on the topic. The downloadable Excel spreadsheet enables subscribers to practice hands-on risk measurement techniques, as demonstrated during the presentation. The downloadable PDF file is the text version of the presentation video.
Actual viewing time may vary depending on how frequently a subscriber wishes to pause or replay segments of the presentation. The guided hands-on Excel exercises can add 10-20 minutes to the time it takes to complete the module, depending on the member’s level of engagement in the exercises.
Mac Excel Limitation
The downloadable Excel spreadsheets in each module use Visual Basic (VBA) code developed in a Windows-based environment and may not be supported in an Excel application that is running on a Mac (Apple) operating system.
