Credit Products and Derivatives Course will provide you with practical application of Credit Products and Derivatives that otherwise would require months, if not years of studying. Curriculum is structured in a way to cover trading, market infrastructure and risk monitoring. Kamil Woronin, Risk and Regulatory Consultant Market Abuse and Trade Surveillance I was happy with the Teacher [Scott Henderson] and was really glad with the interactive course. Moestafa Aolad -si M'hammed, Pre Trade Risk Manager Fixed Income Markets and Analytics Very useful and practical topic [convexity] applicable on a day to day basis. Truly appreciate it! HernĂ¡n Alzate, Consultant Equity Derivatives I discovered new areas of Equity Derivatives that are not broadly covered or too theoretically handled in finance books, which makes it difficult to understand without the help of a practitioner like Dr. Simon Acomb. Simon is great at explaining difficult mathematical concepts and presenting how they can be applied through numerical exercises. At the same time, he balances out the level of detail depending on the knowledge or interest of the group. Kamil, Asset Management Consultant Bank Stress Testing Rupesh is a highly skilled and competent teacher. His strength is in explaining complex concepts in simple and digestible terms. The course content has a good mix of concept explanations and exercises to reinforce the concepts. Tay Yen Joo, Deputy Director Interest Rate Derivatives and Swaps The course provided invaluable insights into a wide range of interest rate derivatives and has enhanced my understanding of these complex financial instruments. I am grateful to Dr. David Cox for his exceptional teaching skills and immense industry experience, which made the course both engaging and informative. Thanasis Dogramatzidis, Money Market and Repo Desk Market Abuse and Trade Surveillance Definitely a prerequisite training course before setting up or reviewing a trade surveillance tool! Chriszinda Immelman, JSE Equity and Bonds Compliance Officer Market Abuse and Trade Surveillance Great teaching with an inspiring presentation! Aurelija Jovaisaite, Associate Compliance Officer Advanced Bank Liquidity Management Rupesh is an excellent teacher. He offered lots of practical exercises and a clear explanation of the topic [Advanced Bank Liquidity Management]. Peter Hancz, Transaction Management Analyst Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution This was a great course with well balanced content. It combined algorithmic trading strategy, regulatory landscape as well as opportunities to learn about historical market events in the e-trading space. It caters to a broad spectrum of attendees from different backgrounds who are interested in developing their understanding of the trading business. Sumathy Rajanayagam, Projects and Business Analysis Lead Interest Rate Derivatives and Swaps I advise this course to anyone who wants to discover/rediscover a passion for maths and theoretics of Derivatives. The teacher was amazing, able to keep my attention over three days of an intense course. Strongly enthusiastic about it! Caterina Bitti, Repo and IRS trader Strategic Asset Liability Management Mr. Taylor is a great teacher, he answers every single question and has an in-depth knowledge of ALM. On the other hand, the course has a right balance between theory and practical applications. Victor Wichi, Senior Officer Strategic Asset Liability Management Great perspective by the best team I have had the pleasure of learning from. Peter P. Domasky, Unknown Market Abuse and Trade Surveillance Good and useful course. Very professional teacher. Chiara Maria Rallo, Advanced Senior Compliance Officer Advanced Bank Liquidity Management After 2 courses in the last 8 years, LFS is still one of the first places I would look at in search of professional financial learning. Catherine Ng, Portfolio Analyst
