Upcoming Workshop: Hands-On Modeling for Market Risk Management 24th and 25th October, 2016 Mumbai


With the creation of global financial networks, banking systems around the world are undoubtedly inter-connected. At the same time, changes in equity prices, interest rates, commodity prices and currencies, i.e. market risk, began to play an increasingly important role in overall risk exposure of financial institutions. Recent global financial crisis forcefully demonstrated the importance of effectively measuring and managing risk and, in particular, market risk.

Due to the stochastic nature of financial markets, it is not possible to accurately predict the future value of a portfolio. Every financial institution with a portfolio exposed to market risk should have a model in place which is designed to measure that risk.


The demands placed on VaR and other similar techniques have grown tremendously, driven by new products such as correlation trading, multi-asset options, power-reverse dual currency swaps, swaps whose notional value amortizes unpredictably, and dozens of other such innovations. To keep up, the tools have evolved and become even more sophisticated. It is critical that those of us directly working in the line of fire keep up with both the drivers and the control measures to mitigate market risk effectively.

Come Join Us as We Embark on This Learning Journey Together!

Our 2-day workshop is designed to deliver a comprehensive understanding of models for VaR computation and model validation techniques, and measure the performance of market risk assessment techniques.



This workshop will enable participants to:

  • Holistically understand the key components of market risk management
  • Understand of models for VaR computation and model validation techniques
  • Compare current mathematical frameworks
  • Build models in Excel using Historical Simulation and other techniques
  • Appreciate Value at Risk and Expected Shortfall
  • Appreciate the impact of various regulations on market risk assessment
  • Adopt global best practices in market risk modeling



  • Comprehensive pre-workshop podcast
  • Exclusive course material for future reference
  • Case study-driven learning methodology
  • Assessments to check your learning and assess your progress
  • Course certificate and full course report


We believe in ‘Learning by Doing’ and place utmost importance to practical understanding of the subject matter. The emphasis of the programme is on the practical – participants will have the opportunity to analyze and understand market risk drivers. They will get hands-on with the key models most frequently used in measuring market risk, and all concepts will be illustrated using real data. Through industry experiences and caselets, participants will understand the regulatory requirements and the approach and measures required to address regulatory expectations. This exclusive, two-day Advanced-level program on Modeling for Market Risk is limited to 25 participants and puts attendees in cohort teams guided by an expert faculty – to facilitate learning, maximize interaction, and form lasting connections.

Key concepts will be illustrated using caselets from the global financial markets to provide real-world context.

What is an EDP?
Executive development programs are customized and highly targeted short-term programs geared towards executives and managers who show great future potential. There always exists a gap between the level at which an executive performs and their potential. Executive development programs aim to harness this untapped potential and create future-ready leaders of tomorrow.
Why are EDPs necessary?
Most new managers feel as though they have been thrown into the middle of the ocean without a life-jacket. Mastering managerial skills will provide managers with the confidence and skills required to manage themselves as well as the team. The training programs serve to sharpen the essential lessons which can be applied to real life situations.
What is the difference between a MDP and an EDP?
While the format of the workshop is essentially the same, the key difference lies in the target audience for these workshops. Management Development Programs are aimed at current leaders (VP-CXO level professionals) who are already familiar with a topic but want to gain new perspectives as a way of strategic development. Executive Development Programs are aimed at executives and managers—the future leaders—who need knowledge transfer on a subject of current interest in order to make better decisions in their current profiles.
What is the duration of the program?
Our workshops offer intensive training and knowledge transfer in a short span of 2 days.
What is the format of the program?
The workshops are conducted as Instructor-led classroom trainings. These workshops are designed and delivered by experienced faculty from the corporate or academic world with proven expertise of executive education. The venue for the workshops will be a three-star hotel where lunch and refreshments will also be served.
How many participants will be there in each workshop?
Each workshop will have no more than 30 participants to ensure effective learning and personalized attention to the needs of all participants.
I like the program, but the price is too high. What can I do?
We offer 10% discount for early bird enrolments for all our programs. However, if you are really keen on attending the workshop but the price is a constraint, your best bet is to ask your Manager or Training Head to nominate you for the workshop, and thereby the cost can be borne by your company.
