  • 2. A CLOSER LOOK P RO G RA M OVERVI EW INTRODUCTION: Derivatives can be used as risk management tools or as investment alternatives. They can be used with or without leverage and with or without exposure beyond the amount of the investment. Investing in derivatives can be just as safe as any other form of investing. In. fact, it can be much safer. Or it can be very risky, but provide the opportunity for much higher returns. It all depends on the investor's choice. This program is for anyone that is really keen to know more about financial instruments. Your bank is probably using derivatives right now, even if you are unaware of it. We said this because if your funding had any investments in foreign stocks with assets hedged against the foreign currency risk involved in foreign stocks. Then your bank is actually using currency futures and forwards to do so, a form of derivative. This is the kind of thing that you do not learn from armchair academics. How strange that bank managers just didn't think that what they are doing involved derivatives, since it was decreasing the risk of his fund's investments, rather than increasing it. This program is to allow you to find out whether your bank is in any way doing financial derivatives. “Black Belt in Financial Instruments” training is designed by the same person that accurately predicts** the implosion of the Credit Default Swap that led to the closure of Lehman Brothers and subsequently the financial crisis at AIG. This program explores global and Asian securities markets. It looks at recent volatility as well as the extraordinary assortment of investment and financing alternatives available. Government bonds, corporate securities of all risk categories, as well as the syndicated bank market and asset securitizations are examined, including the securities that contributed to the recent sub-prime crisis. Participants learn what the securities are, when they are suitable for different issuers or investors, how they are constructed, the risks they pose. COURSE CONTENT WHO SHOULD ATTEND • Private Bankers  Systemic Risk in recent market volatility - • Investment Bankers • Senior Management Staff  How secure are government securities • Heads of Internal Audit/Corporate Audit • Credit Auditors  The role of central banks in capital markets - • Corporate Lending Officers • Credit Managers  Short, medium and long term funding and investment alternatives - • Credit Administrations • Operations Managers  Who pays Credit- rating agencies and their opinions • Bank Regulators • Corporate Lending Officers  Valuing equity securities • Audit Managers/Officers • Finance Directors  Convertibles and debt with warrants • Heads of Regulatory Affairs • Portfolio Managers  Futures, forwards, swaps and options to manage interest rate risk • Heads of Credit Control • Management & Strategy Consultants  Foreign exchange markets • Enterprise/Commercial Banking Managers  Credit Default Swaps and asset securitization ** “A er one whole year, it is not just the Sub-Prime that we should be worried about; the next BIG thing is the default on the “GUARANTEES” given out (sold) by the financial ins tu ons” this was said at the FIMA Strategic Resources public seminar on Forensic Accoun ng and Fraud th Inves ga on in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 14 August 2008
