Venue: Budapest, Danubius Grand Hotel

The objective of the workshop is to present the current functions of the major financial markets and instruments in a structured and comprehensive way.



Course objectives

The objective of the Financial Markets and Market Risk Management Workshop is to present the current functions of the major financial markets and instruments in a structured and comprehensive way. The participants will receive a good and practical understanding of markets and instruments.

We will start with an overview of recent developments in the financial markets, including the new regulation. We will discuss reasons for the movements of foreign exchange and interest rates. Then we will take a closer look of capital markets.

Main equity and debt instruments will be presented. In the end, we will make a short, but thorough introduction to the derivatives markets and instruments.

After discussing specific market risks, the instruments and methods used to manage individual risks will be discussed in more detail and supported with case studies from practice.

At the end of the seminar, we will introduce the concept of Value at Risk (VaR), as an important measure of market risk, and demonstrate how it is calculated and used.

Teaching methodology

The workshop consists of the theory of financial instruments and financial markets, debates, short examples, and exercises. Prior knowledge in this field of finance is not required. The workshop is also suitable for all, who trade on a daily basis with different financial products and would like to complement their theoretical knowledge or upgrade with practical examples from real life. Participants are asked to bring a financial calculator (HP 17BII or similar) for calculating practical examples and exercises. Only a minimal amount of calculus knowledge is required in order to master numerical analyses and examples during the workshop.

After the workshop, participants will better understand financial instruments and the logic of the functioning of financial markets, as well as the link between the instruments and the risks.
