  • Finance and treasury is something most accountants have limited training on. However, they are often called upon for advice in these areas, particularly to hedge various risks. Even if they work with experts, it is important to understand some of the complexities to be more effective in their role. Most accountants are familiar with the basics, such as simple options, but are not aware of the complex strategies that could be implemented. Performing the accounting effectively requires a good understanding of the business behind financial instruments.

    This course reviews the business side of finance, hedging, and treasury; it develops a solid understanding of some of the key principles behind complex transactions to obtain a better understanding of the business aspects.

    • Money spreads
    • Swaps and Swaptions

    WHO WILL BENEFIT:

    This seminar is designed for professionals who would like to broaden their business knowledge of finance, financial instruments and hedging, particular the lesser known strategies and how they are practiced.
