About the course

Since the 2021 Archegos collapse, the imperative for robust counterparty risk management has become increasingly clear. Led by industry experts, this course offers a thorough exploration of counterparty credit risk management, covering essential topics such as stress-testing and CVAs. With an emphasis on the SA-CCR, this training provides insights into its application, limitations and impact on key financial instruments such as uncollateralised swaps.

Participants will also learn about the emerging regulatory framework for WWR, centralised solutions and decentralised finance. An additional focus will be on IM with discussion of regulatory minimums and models.

Attendees will leave the course with the necessary knowledge and strategies to enhance the resilience and stability of their financial operations.
