By the end of the course, participants should be able to identify, evaluate, and limit risks.

At the end of the course, participants have developed a deep understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the most popular approaches to risk management, the ability to apply structural models in probability prediction, and exposure to value credit default swaps, market stressors, and the correlation of basket products. Most participants will be able to apply the principles of the course immediately in the workplace.
