Treasury Market Product

Programme Overview

Numerous financial market participants may not always fully grasp the reasons behind the development of financial markets, their true purpose, and the optimal utilisation of financial products and derivatives.

In addition to the above, in as far as an appreciation of the construction of Yield Curves as a pivotal part of the financial instruments pricing engines is concerned, many participants merely view these as black boxes, with no necessity to fully understand the concepts behind the black boxes; instead they are contented to fully rely on systems to do the necessary computations for them. The lack of understanding of the key concepts behind these black boxes often leads to a lack of understanding of the inherent components of the various treasury products and derivatives, and the risk exposures they can generate.

This programme intends to provide an initial basic foundational introduction to treasury markets and financial products, and to explain why some of these financial products were developed in the first instance, and how these products should be properly used and what some of the inherent risks are when dealing such products, both from the perspective of an end user as well as that of a dealer in a financial institution.

Concepts will be strongly emphasised throughout the programme, and will also focus on practical aspects involved in the dealing of financial products.

Participants will be put through some “dirty their hands” exercises, thought-provoking challenges and analysis of treasury products and derivatives from a dealer’s perspective as well as a risk manager’s perspective. The programme will also include a discussion of treasury products and derivatives from an end-user’s perspective.

Objectives
