Equity derivatives are based on equities (stocks) and equity indices. The pricing and performance are closely linked to these underlying cash instruments.
This course is designed to familiarise participants with the structures of each of the widely used equity derivative products. We will begin with an overview of the building blocks of the more complex equity derivative instruments: the underlying equities instruments and the derivative contracts.
We examine the risk/return characteristics of the products and also the pricing, trading and hedging strategies of the various equity derivative contracts. The course will then proceed to a range of equity derivative contracts to include: equity options and equity index options, equity futures and equity index futures, and equity swaps and equity index swaps.
The course will be interactive and highly practical. The focus of the course is that you learn exactly how to use them in practice. This is the only equity derivatives course you'll need.
Candidates can choose to enrol on any of the available class formats - Daytime Release, Weekend or Evening Series.
