Never before have financial issues been so often been the headline news. It is therefore crucial that today’s business professionals expand their financial knowledge to allow them to contribute to daily decisions and debates.
This course is designed specifically for non-financial personnel; this intensive seminar educates and informs delegates of the key financial markets/products/risks and hazards.
The seminar provides delegates with the tools required to find better answers to questions such as:
Using a combination of lectures and individual exercises with practical applications, the delegates will gain both a theoretical and practical knowledge of the topics covered. The emphasis is on the “real world” and as a result delegates will return to the workplace with both the ability and the confidence to apply the techniques learned.
This seminar provides an integrated blending of concept and practical application. As well as developing subject knowledge delegates will return with enhanced quantitative and technical skills. Advanced Excel skills are increasingly a pre-requisite for financial analysis. Delegates will return to the organisation with great exposure to the power of Excel.
Delegates will acquire detailed knowledge about the trading, pricing and risk management associated with a variety of financial products. The practical and real world approach will provide delegates with a “tool-box” to bring back to the organisation to assist in the analysis of financing, treasury and risk management decisions
