By the end of this training course, trainees will be able to :
-    Identify the component of market risk and their measurement approaches.
-    Calculate specific measures of interest rate risk, FX risk, equity and commodity risks.
-    Compare market risk management for a trading book versus banking book structures.
-    Compare and contrast different risk measurement techniques (e.g., gross/net exposure, concentration measure, value at risk (VaR), expected shortfall, etc.).
-    Compare the different VaR methodologies (parametric, historical simulation and Monte Carlo simulation) and understand the advantages and disadvantages of each methodology.
-    Calculate a simple VaR to a single position (Parametric and Historical Simulation) and expected shortfall measures.
-    Gain an understanding of market risk stress testing and its importance.
-    Define stress testing techniques for trading exposures (e.g., FX, interest rate, equity commodity).
-    Demonstrate a sound understanding of Asset Liability Management (ALM) in terms of the scope and its importance to banks.
-    Identify the main ALM tools including IRR mismatch management and performance management, funds transfer pricing, and liquidity management.
-    Describe the elements of market risk governance and risk management process.
