Course description

Managing FX Risk in a Volatile World

Managing FX Risk in a Volatile World

Currency risk affects any organisation operating across international borders – and volatility in FX markets has never been greater, with shock moves in a single day of up to 20% in major currency pairs, like £/$ after Brexit, or the €/CHF after the SNB changed its policy.

No firm can afford to ignore these risks. ACF’s essential seminar on Managing FX Risk in a Volatile World explains how treasurers and bankers can effectively manage currency exposure using the latest hedging techniques. Over an intensive two-day period, the seminar:

  • Reviews the workings of the FX spot and forward markets and the fundamentals of options.
  • Provides an intuitive understanding of option pricing, and the significance of volatility.
  • Explains option Greeks, and why they are important.
  • Highlights the key differences between FX options, and options on other underliers.
  • Demonstrates how FX options can be combined in different ways to create a wide variety of valuable structures.
  • Illustrates how vanilla FX options can be combined to build targeted hedges, or to exploit specific views of the market.
  • Develops within delegates an innovative and pro-active approach to the handling of FX risk management needs.

In addition, the seminar consolidate delegates’ understanding by providing extensive first-hand experience with computer-based strategy evaluation, graphics, analytics, option pricing, and simulation.
