- By the end of this training course, trainees will be able to :
-    Describe independent events and mutually exclusive events and explain the difference between independent events and conditionally independent events.
-    Calculate the probability of an event for a discrete probability function and calculate a conditional probability.
-    Define and distinguish between volatility, variance, correlation and covariance.
-    Distinguish between important distribution functions (e.g. Uniform, Normal, Lognormal Distribution, Student’s t, Binomial, Poisson) 
-    Compute and interpret basic statistical measures relating to risk management (e.g. mean, standard deviation, kurtosis, correlation. etc.).
-    Construct simple and multiple liner regression and be able to apply these tools in finance.
-    Estimate simple volatility using historical financial data and identify the issues with traditional volatility estimation methods. 

Target Group
