About the Course

Finance professionals as well as non-finance professionals (software developers, business analysts, credit analysts, etc.) who want to move into finance often want to learn to develop derivatives valuation and risk analysis models. Even experienced risk management professionals who have the theoretical background of the risk management models, find theirs skills to be inadequate when it comes to developing and practically implementing the models. For them having the theoretical background is not enough to actually implement these models in practice. Very often these models are now implemented in Python. This is why we have designed this course tailor-made for imparting these skills. This program is designed for people who have prior programming knowledge in any language and want to move into risk management or derivatives valuations field and want learn to develop applications related in these areas.

This is an implementation-oriented course in which practicing Risk Modellers, Investment Bankers and Treasury Professionals teach the latest valuation techniques and risk modeling skills that are used in the industry. This course starts with learning basic tools and theories related to the field and goes on to learning implementation of valuation models of derivative instruments of various asset classes using the models being used in the industry and then learning to carry out risk analysis and implement various risk models for various asset classes
