Recent surveys of corporate treasurers globally identified that a significant proportion of them fail to manage their FX risk as they didn’t know what risk they had - it was very much an unknown.
We’re delighted to introduce the Advanced FX Hedging Masterclass which is a live 3 half-day program of 4 hours each designed for finance, treasury and banking professionals. This intense workshop will equip delegates with an advanced understanding of not only ways of evaluating FX and IR risk in their financial statements and wider commercial activity but also strategies that can be used to not only hedge it but optimize and enhance margin.
Understand how to identify FX sensitivities via stress testing of income statements and balance sheets.
Appreciate how to utilize linear strategies to hedge FX risk and potentially optimize funding.
Gain awareness of option pricing/risking and how non-linear strategies can be deployed to hedge FX risk and/or potentially enhance yield/lower cost of funding.
Be able to articulate how IR and Cross Currency Swaps can be utilized to manage FX and IR Risk and gain an intuitive understanding of the pricing/ risking of these products.
